Kukui Grove, Kaua‘i Arbor Day Tree Giveaway
On Saturday, November 2nd, the annual free tree giveaway will be held from 9 a.m. to noon (or until all plants are given away). It is sponsored by the Kaua‘i Landscaping Industry Council and Garden Island Resource Conservation & Development, Inc.
The event will be held at Kukui Grove Center (final location coming soon). This year, more than 1,200 plants consisting of a variety of noninvasive and native species will be given away.
Certified Arborists, Landscape Industry Certified Technicians (LICT), native plant experts and landscaping professionals will be on hand to answer questions and give advice.
The “Keiki Vegetable Planting Zone” is very popular at Arbor Day. This favorite activity teaches youngsters how to transplant young seedlings and promotes the growing of plants. Children can get their hands dirty and pot up herb and veggie seedlings to take home.
The educational booths are sponsored by many of the island’s local conservation groups. Learn about native plants and birds, invasive species, Rat Lung Worm Disease, Rapid Ohia Death and more. Also, by interacting with these educators, stamps can be earned that will entitle participants additional free trees!
Be sure to come early for the best selection of plants! The event closes when all of the trees have been given away.
