Arbor Day expo culminates with drive-thru tree giveaway
In partnership with Hawaiian Electric and Kaulunani Urban and Community Forestry Program, Maui Nui Botanical Gardens and the Maui Association of Landscape Professionals will host an extended and virtual Arbor Day Garden Expo from Wednesday to Friday, culminating in an Islandwide Nursery Open House and Drive-Thru Tree Giveaway from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Nov. 7 at the War Memorial Gymnasium parking lot in Wailuku.
This year’s event will feature online lectures, presentations and webinars from certified arborists, landscaping professionals and local conservations organizations. Topics include everything from proper tree planting and care to seed starting and storage for native plants.
The annual 1,000 Hawaiian Tree Giveaway will be a socially-distanced, drive-thru event. Residents are asked to reserve their trees at arborday
expo.com. Trees are limited to one per email address and must be reserved online. To reduce traffic on Nov. 7, reservations are in one-hour increments and residents are asked to enter the event by turning right from Kanaloa Avenue onto Halia Nakoa Street. Left turns will not be permitted.
