The Maui Nui Botanical Gardens hosts its annual Arbor Day 1,000 Hawaiian Tree Giveaway, on Saturday, November 3, from 9 a.m. to noon.

More than 25 varieties of Native Hawaiian and Polynesian-introduced trees will be available for free (1 tree per person, any age).

Experts will be on hand to recommend the best Hawaiian tree for your area of residence.

The celebration will also feature free demonstrations on proper tree care, as well as many community organizations sharing information about Hawaii’s vital environmental issues.


The Gardens are located at 150 Kanaloa Avenue in Kahului. Email [email protected] for more information.


The event is made possible with the support of Maui Electric Company, Kaulunani Urban and Community Forestry Program, the County of Maui Department of Water Supply, and the Maui Nui Botanical Gardens.
