The “We ❤ Trees!” art contest for grades K through 8th grades highlighting the benefits of trees. Through children and art TFHF, along with Healthy Climate Communities and additional sponsors, brings attention to our hardworking arbor friends. This supports our effort to spark conversations, at schools, among families, and with the public at-large, about the many benefits trees bring to our lives and our environment.

One example of action is through community-based Trees for Kaimukī project in cooperation with EnVision Kaimukī, SmartTrees Pacific, and the National Park Service’s Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance Program. Some milestones:

  • Assisted Better Block Hawaii by placing trees in planters that double as tables. A perfect place for outdoor dining; includes tree tags that educate/engage.
  • Mapped 1,446 trees and identified over 300 potential planting locations
  • Stepped in to help save drought-stressed trees along Ft. Ruger Pathway at Diamond Head State Monument
  • Produced “Secrets of Kaimukī Parks” virtual program
  • Collaborated with City to improve 18 tree wells in central Kaimukī business district along Waialae Avenue
  • Built a rain garden on the corner of 11th & Harding Avenue
