I work with landowners and professional foresters in Hawai‘i and the Pacific Islands on management of both native forests and tree farms. My particular interests are in forest health, restoration of native forests, silviculture of Acacia koa, nurseries, agroforestry, and landowner networks. Prior to coming to Hawai‘i, I worked in agroforestry extension in the Philippines with the Peace Corps. I earned a bachelor’s degree in biology at Dartmouth College in 1982 and a master’s in forestry at the Yale School of Forestry in 1985. I did my doctoral research on agroforestry and graduated from the University of Hawai‘i in 1998.
