at Pacific Flight
Terraformation is planting new forest at the Pacific Flight site on the northern Kohala peninsula of Hawai’i. This barren site has not supported forest growth for over a century.
The Pacific Flight site has a large solar powered desalination facility and water catchment system that allows us to implement our forestry plan. With fresh water from the desalination station, we can irrigate the out-plants and establish the foundation of a new forest, the Acacia koaia tree, and the shrub, Dodonaea viscosa.
As the new forest has begun to take root, we have observed that the site has a seed bank in the soil and native species like Sida fallax and Jacquemontia ovafolia appear naturally.
Pacific Flight also houses seed collections for the Hawai’i Island Seed Bank.
Off-Grid Solar and Water Desalination
Terraformation built the largest off-grid 100% solar powered saltwater desalination facility in the world at Pacific Flight.
