Trees for Honolulu's Future



A tree-filled island that preserves and enhances our quality of life in the face of climate change


  • Reduce O’ahu’s contribution to climate change and the heat island effect and thus, simultaneously conserve electric power

  • Encourage and facilitate the planning, planting, and maintenance of shade trees along streets, in parks, at schools, and in public places on O’ahu 

  • Coordinate and reinforce the efforts of governmental agencies, private businesses, and non-profit organizations in making O’ahu a shade tree friendly island

  • Reap the environmental, economic, social, psychological, and health benefits of trees

  • Educate our citizenry on the importance of shade trees in making our island more livable and more beautiful as temperatures rise in the tropics
