Panel of Advisers

Members of the Panel of Advisers (Panel) are drawn from multiple sectors: government, business, education, healthcare, legal, non-profit, arborists, land-owners, and developers, among others. They are persons who support the purposes that Trees for Honolulu’s Future (TFHF) seeks to fulfill. They want a tree-filled Honolulu just as much as the members of the Board of Directors do.
