“Hawaii’s ecology has been a delicate balance since the very beginning of human contact. Hawaiian Legacy Reforestation Initiative has led the movement to restore these forests that are vital to the natural health and identity of these islands. Our partnership with HLRI gives guests of ‘Alohilani the chance to experience reforestation firsthand on horseback along the North Shore, and play a part in restoring balance to the area by planting their own indigenous hardwood tree.”
