O'ahu Nahele - Tree Planting with Hawaiian Legacy Forest

Native tree plantings are a simple but powerful way to combat climate change and create a legacy that will give back to the earth and the community for decades to come. In this experience, you not only send a ripple of positive change, but you participate directly in a special cultural experience benefiting the local nahele or forest.

During your tree planting and eco-tour, our guides will talk about the history of the Hawaiian land and how your tree will contribute to healing the local ecosystem. Personally plant the tree in a memorable experience and leave knowing you’ve made a measurable difference in the effort to create a sustainable future. Ask our charter specialists about adding an off-roading forest adventure or horseback riding to this experience.


  • Aerial sightseeing tour of O’ahu 
  • Education about Hawai’i culture and ecosystem
  • Tree planting activity
  • Cabin cooler with light refreshments

Inquire for pricing and availability. We offer multiple departure points across O’ahu.

Ho’iho’i is a Hawaiian word meaning return, and in this experience, you will help nurture the native flora on the Island of Hawaii.
