Hawaii’s Largest Carbon Credit Scheme to be Evicted from its own HQ?

Hawaii Legacy Hardwoods (HLH) and its CEO, Jeffrey Dunster, are facing eviction from the Nuuanu home which serves as corporate HQ for Hawaii’s largest carbon credit scheme and several related corporations.

The eviction suit, filed October 1, 2018 in Honolulu District Court, by R. T. Forrester of the Dubin Law Firm, is the latest of several lawsuits filed against HLH—including a separate eviction suit seeking removal of HLH from several big island houses on Kukaiau Ranch land for non-payment of rent. 

Honolulu lawyer Gary V Dubin represented Dunster, 1997-98, in the second of three Dunster divorces.  Then, just as Dunster’s third divorce went to trial in 2007, one of Dunster’s Cook Island trusts, Coelho Way Corp, sold Dunster’s $4M Nuuanu home for $1,000 to Nuu Corporation, a Nevada corporation owned by then-Dubin Law Firm attorney Long VuA few days later, Nuu Corp re-sold the home for $1,000 to another Nevada corporation, Greentree Properties, LLC, whose sole listed ‘Managing Member’ is Dubin. 

In addition to not owning its HQ, HLH does not own any of the land upon which its carbon credit trees are planted.

Meanwhile HLH is facing a separate eviction proceeding from four houses owned by Kukaiau Ranch on the Big Island.  The next hearing related to that case, and an HLH countersuit, is Monday, October 8, 2018 in the Kona Courtroom of 3rd District Court Judge Robert DS Kim. 

Contacted by Hawai’i Free Press, Dubin said, “These are all private matters, none of your public business….”

Dunster did not reply to a request for comment.
