We are so grateful for your support of our Trees for Tribes program, and 2018 has been a very fruitful year indeed!
While at the moment our team is busy planting trees in other parts of the world (currently we are writing from the Island of Hawai'i where we have plans to work with the Hawaiian Homelands on a demonstration orchard at the Maku'u Farmer's Market in the Puna District), we are also actively planning for our 2019 Trees for Tribes projects. We are anticipating to plant and distribute fruit trees across several Native American Reservations and at tribal homes and schools in Minnesota, Michigan, and Arizona. Stay tuned for updates in the coming months...
Thank you for your belief that fruit trees can be the answer to so many pressing issues on Native lands, and putting your faith in the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation to bring this program to those tribes who need it the most.

Fruit Trees for Uganda 2019
By Lizzy Rainey - Programs Manager
Dear friends of FTPF,
We are so grateful for your support of our program to bring fruit trees to the people of Uganda. Over the past five years, we have been able to establish a nursery to grow tens of thousands of fruit trees and plant and distribute those trees to schools, farmers, and families all across the country.
While at the moment our team is busy planting trees in other parts of the world, we are actively planning for year six in Uganda in 2019. We will continue our work to alliviate hunger, poor nutrition, deforestation, and poverty through the planting of fruit trees in this amazing yet struggling nation.
Thanks you for your belief that fruit trees can be the answer to so many of Ugandas's pressing issues, and putting your faith in the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation to bring this program to those Ugandans who need it the most.
Webale nyo (thank you very much)!

Volcanic Activity - July 2018 Update
By Lizzy Rainey - Program Manager
As we are sure many of you are aware, the Big Island of Hawai'i is experiencing on-going eruptions from the Kilauea volcano. Therefore, we are pausing this fundraiser due to the current situation that has affected so many operations on the Big Island and created emergency conditions for area residents and institutions.
As we learn more about the future of our area and what the Puna District will look like once the eruptions have halted, we will look forward to sending all of you updates on our plans.
Mahalo nui loa for your contributions towards protecting Hawaii's lowland forest, and please keep the island of Hawai'i and the residents of Puna in your thoughts.
