Through the Hawaiian Legacy Reforestation Initiative, a nonprofit organization that has led the permanent reforestation of more than 340,000 endemic trees on Hawaii Island, the Hawaii Convention Center has committed to planting 1 million native trees across the state. Join us as we support these vital reforestation efforts. With a few clicks, you can sponsor a Legacy Tree, track its development, and help Hawaii grow a brighter future.
We invite you to sponsor your own Hawaiian Legacy Tree. Planted on the Hāmākua Coast on the Island of Hawai‘i, your koa tree gift will perpetuate for years and grow to over 50 feet in its natural environment
Walk the ancient trails and feel the connection. Plant your ʻohana (family) tree in Hawaii and become a part of the rich history of this special place.
