O'ahu Nahele - Tree Planting with Hawai'i Legacy Hardwoods

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 ceremony and leave knowing you’ve made a measurable difference in the effort to create a sustainable future. Ask our charter specialists about adding an offroading forest adventure or horseback riding to this experience.

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

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

Ho'oku'u 'ia - Set Free

Ho’oku’u ‘ia means to set free or release, and on this adventure you will help release the ‘aina or land from invasive Christmas Berry on Hawai’i Island. This tough and aggressive shrub releases chemicals that inhibit the growth of other species, and is considered one of the most significant threats to endangered local Hawaiian plants. We will touch down at one of the most remote and beautiful sites on the island where you will learn how to play a small but vital part to protect Hawai’i’s ecosystem. Learn how to identify this plant and remove a few of them to release the land from their hold before they grow large and have a harmful impact on the area. Guests will also get to explore the area and enjoy beautiful ocean views which make for stunning photos. Ask our charter specialists about adding a gourmet catered lunch at an oceanside waterfall.

Includes:

  • Private landing at remote forested sites
  • Aerial tour of the island, sights vary depending on path
