He ali‘i ka ‘aina; he kauwa ke kanaka – The land is a chief; man is its servant



Hawai‘i’s Forest Stewardship Program (FSP), administered by the Department of Land and Natural Resources, Division of Forestry and Wildlife (DLNR-DOFAW), provides technical and financial assistance to owners of nonindustrial private forest land that are interested in conservation, restoration, and/or timber production. Please refer to the Forest Stewardship Handbook for more information and applications for the program.

The Forest Stewardship Handbook contains all of the information that is needed by the forest landowner to participate in the program.  Procedures for application, proposal and management plan content, forestry practices, cost-share rates, and more can be found within the Handbook.

The implementation of the Forest Stewardship Program is governed by Hawai‘i Administrative Rules Chapter 109.

The annual report to the State Legislature regarding the Hawai‘i Forest Stewardship Program complies with Chapter 195F, Hawai‘i Revised Statutes (HRS) and covers specific topics relating to the Forest Stewardship Program.  This report covers actions taken through the past fiscal year as required to implement the statutory provisions of the program.

Please refer to the 2017 Annual Report to the State Legislature for further information on the Hawai‘i program implementation.

The Hawai‘i Forest Action Plan presents goals, objectives, and strategies for the program.  Please refer to the State of Hawai‘i Forest Action Plan for more information.
