During the Great Depression, the Territory of Hawaii's Civilian Conservation Corps (C.C.C.) planted these Sugi (Japanese red-cedar) to restore Kauai's watershed. Damaged by over a century of reckless sandalwood and fuel-wood harvesting as well as overgrazing, the watershed could no longer reliably supply the Island's irrigation needs. This program gave the Territory's Board of Agriculture and Forestry a tremendous boost to forest management and natural resources conservation. To access planting, the C.C.C built Koke'e's remote roads--roads that are still used today for recreation, hunting, forest management, and irrigation system operation and maintenance.

PHOTO PRINTS
Prints are on Hahnemuhle heavyweight (315 gsm) 100% archival cotton “Photo Rag Baryta” paper, using archival inks and archival spray coating. They have a 200-year life expectancy before any deterioration of the print will be observed when stored, handled, and displayed under archival conditions.

CANVAS PRINTS
What is often called “Gallery Wrap Canvas” is a fine art inkjet (Giclee) print on canvas, with printed edges to wrap around a wooden stretcher frame, like a painting. With canvas prints, your print image is still the same size, but given a "wrap effect" around the edges to account for the thickness of the stretcher. Canvas can be rolled and shipped with no effect to the print. Your local framing shop should be able to mount the canvas to stretchers at a fraction of the cost of traditional framing, making for an overall more economical way to get fine art on your wall. The canvas is printed to wrap around a 1-inch stretcher (1.5 inches on larger sizes). Specifications will be provided with your order. Feel free to contact us if you need guidance with your canvas order.
