Rotary Gives Thanks Tree Planting 2020

A Day to Make Friends, Plant Trees, & Fight Climate Change

Join us on the Saturday after Thanksgiving to plant 5,000 trees and offset climate change.
In just 2-hours you’ll plant 10 trees, plus … 

  • All equipment is provided.
  • Free onsite parking is available.
  • Holes are pre-dug, volunteers won’t dig holes.
  • The event will comply with all COVID-19 safety guidelines.
As Hawaii residents, climate change poses a huge risk to our future. In the near future ocean levels may rise, and temperatures may become unbearable.

Come help us offset climate change by planting trees. Each tree takes 48 lbs of carbon out of the air. 

We’re planting 5,000 trees — that’s 240,000lbs of carbon per year!

Every person counts … please help us protect the future for ourselves and future generations.
Reserve your spot now — spaces are limited!

This event is hosted by the Eco Rotary Club of Kaka’ako and Rotary District 5000. Each volunteer must register separately through Eventbrite. More information will be provided as the event approaches.


We're currently seeking two different types of volunteers: Leadership Team & Tree Planters. Please note — you can only volunteer for one or the other. Volunteers are not able to do both jobs.
Leadership Team
The leadership team will handle logistics and manage the event. Jobs assigned will vary based on the volunteers interests and abilities. To volunteer for the leadership team please click the button below.

Tree Planters
Tree Planter volunteers will be the volunteers that actually plant the trees. To volunteer to be a tree planter please click the button below.


Each volunteer is expected to plant 10 trees. 
But don’t worry! 
All of the holes will be pre-dug — volunteers will not be asked to dig holes. 
Volunteers will be asked to place the half-grown trees in the holes, and cover them with dirt.
More detailed instructions & a demonstration will be provided on the day of planting.
