Forest Management
Planning

An economically sound, locally realistic and environmentally friendly strategic plan is a necessary component of sound forest management. Whether your project is 10 acres or 10,000 acres, Forest Solutions can help you prepare a plan that is suitable to your project needs. Our management plans are written with realistic expectations in mind, something we take particular pride in. Forestry projects have many uncertainties, let us help you create a plan that addresses them.


Certification

The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and the Sustainable Forest Initiative (SFI) are two popular American forest certification programs. The FSC program has over 150 million acres of forest land certified across the United States. These programs provide standards of forest management to meet environmental, social, cultural, and economic criterion. There are numerous benefits to having your forest certified and we can help you achieve them.
We are the only management company in Hawaii with experience in forest certification. In 2005 Forest Solutions helped to achieve the first FSC certification of a forest in Hawaii and we have continued to help the landowner meet the certification criteria through yearly audits for the past 7 years.


Harvesting

Harvesting is a natural progression for many commercial forests. When embarking on a harvesting project, it is important to plan well from the start to ensure a successful project. That includes your harvesting plan, your harvesting systems and the harvesting road planning. Forest Solutions has experience in harvesting here in Hawai'i and in other parts of the world. We know how to plan and implement those plans to maximize your profits while being environmentally friendly.


Mensuration

Accurate timber volume and tree growth measurements constitute the foundation of efficient and productive forest management. Forest Solutions' inventory field technicians work in plantation Eucalyptus as well as native Hawaiian forests, assisted by computerized data collection, digital hypsometers and GPS. Our analysis personnel integrate field data from forests of any size to generate reliable, accurate, species-specific and multi-product timber inventories.
