Join us on Saturday, November 2nd for the second annual Arbor Day Honolulu Festival at Foster Botanical Garden!
Arbor Day Honolulu Festival will not only be a site to pick up a free tree for Arbor Day Hawai’i, but a community celebration of all things trees!
Foster Botanical Garden will open to the public at 9:00 AM. At arrival, attendees will check in to receive a pick up number and wait to be called in groups to receive their free tree (limited to one tree per family, while supplies last).
Attendees will have access to educational booths, fun activities, workshops, vendors, and live performances as they wait for their tree.

Attendance to the tree giveaway includes free admission to Foster Botanical Garden, a beautiful 14-acre urban forest sanctuary in the midst of downtown Honolulu. Arborists and volunteers will be on hand at each site with information on the best growing environment and tree care practices for each tree.
