Planting Trees and Climate Action
Tree planting is one of the most effective ways for us, as individuals, and collectively, to positively impact climate change and in fact, a study published in Science found that planting trees can be one of the best ways to offset the effects of global warming. The researchers determined that: “The restoration of trees remains among the most effective strategies for climate change mitigation.”
Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80% of the world's terrestrial biodiversity and forests absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere. Healthy, strong trees act as carbon sinks, offset carbon and reducing the effects of climate change. Trees play a key role in capturing rainwater and reducing the risk of natural disasters like floods and landslides. Their intricate root systems act like filters, removing pollutants and slowing down the water’s absorption into the soil. 
We are partnering with Hawaiian Legacy Reforestation Initiative (HLRI) on this tree planting project at Gunstock Ranch. Since the arrival of man in the Hawaiian Islands, over half of the native forests have been lost. Since its inception in 2014, (HLRI) has been working hard to reverse this trend and return these forests to the native landscape. Working together with community minded businesses, non-profits and individual Legacy Tree sponsors, more than 400,000 endemic trees now cover nearly 1200 acres in the state’s first Hawaiian Legacy Forest.
Give the gift of a living legacy by sponsoring an endemic Legacy Tree for $90. You will receive a beautiful personalized certificate and the knowledge that $30 goes to Eco Rotary Club of Kakaako to fund their environmental projects . The remainder funds collecting seeds by hand, raising your seedling in our nurseries, planting your tree to create a forest, fencing out pests, clearing invasive species, and of course, the RFID tagging so you can track your tree.  If you would like to sponsor a tree, go to :
