HONOLULU, HI -- Sustainable tropical hardwood forestry company, Hawaiian Legacy Hardwoods (HLH), appointed Andrew Callister as senior consultant for its eco-asset management program.

“Andrew combines technical competence and business acumen to enhance the value of forestry projects and capitalize on emerging opportunities,” said Jeffrey Dunster, chief executive officer of HLH. “His background in the management of voluntary and pre-compliance carbon markets will enhance growth for our investors and allow us to reinvest in securing more land and planting more trees. This is the very definition of sustainability.”

Callister will be responsible for generating and managing high-quality carbon credits and environmental assets.

HLH plants koa trees on Hawaii Island. It has set aside 1, 000 acres of its sustainable forestry project to establish the state’s first Hawaiian Legacy Forest in which some trees are planted for investors for eventual harvest and other "Legacy Trees" are planted to permanently reforest the land and sequester carbon.
