Although we, like the rest of the world, are doing our best to stay indoors while we grapple with the unprecedented circumstances of COVID19, we wanted to let you know we are still working hard to make our native tree planting projects in Hawai'i happen later this year. Once it is safe, we will work with our partners at Hawai'i Environmental Restoration to schedule community volunteer workdays in the forest to plant hundreds of native trees.
If you are able to make a contribution, we would be very grateful. If not, there are lots of other ways to support FTPF like sharing this fundraiser with your friends and family, or even a quick mention on social media would mean the world to us.
Have a very happy Earth Week and we look forward to seeing you in the forest one day soon!

One month ago exactly, the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation returned to Hawai'i to plant 100 native trees in the Keau'ohana Forest Reserve. We were joined by our Board President David Wolfe, who created a beautiful video documenting this lively and fun day in the forest planting trees amongst volunteers and friends. Check out the video below to see us in action and to get a glimpse of this incredible forest and the native trees you are supporting!
We want to say how incredibly grateful we are to Hawai'i Environmental Restoration who continues to lead the effort to protect and restore this unique ecosystem and to all their staff and volunteers dedicated to this important work. And, of course, to YOU, our wonderful supporters for caring about Hawai'i's last lowland forest!
We are very excited to be heading back to the Big Island of Hawai'i at the end of the year to once again help reforest the Keau'ohana Forest Reserve! We will be working with Keau'ohana Native Rainforest Restoration (KNRR) to reforest and replant this precious ecosystem with native 'ohe and ohi'a trees in order to help maintain this unique reservoir of rare native biodiversity.
We just wanted to send you a quick note to let you know we are still actively fundraising for our project to help reforest and replant the Keau'ohana Forest Reserve on Hawai'i Island, the largest and most intact rainforest remaining below 1,000 ft in Hawai'i. Through our partnership with Keau'ohana Native Rainforest Restoration (KNRR), we are working to protect and restore this unique ecosystem through the propagation and planting of native tree species.
We hope to hold our next planting event in early 2020, but we need to raise the funds in order to grow and plant the trees and support the project. Please consider donating today or you can help by sharing this fundraiser with friends, family, or on social media!
