Aloha Friday – Let’s Talk About Trees and Planting Trees

Plant A Tree Maui HawaiiMy Aloha Friday question to you is this: “what is your favorite tree?” Drawing a blank and can’t figure out which tree is your favorite? Well, just let me know the name of the first tree that comes to your mind! Why am I talking about trees today? Because tomorrow is Hawaii’s Arbor Day (I read on Arborday.com that it’s today, Friday, but many of the celebrations are happening tomorrow).

I know it’s a bit late, but it’s not too late to decide to participate in the Statewide tree planting events. If you are on Maui, I encourage you to join the First Hawaii Native Tree Plant Out being organized by Sara Tekula and Joe Imhoff of Plant A Wish project.  Plant a Wish is a native tree planting awareness project founded in Hawaii that brings local communities together, holds hands-on native tree planting ceremonies in all 50 states, and will culminate in an informative and fun documentary film. You can read more about the Plant A Wish organization on their website.

Check out the 7 Ways to Be Part Of Plant A Wish Finale on 11/5 right now and know how you can  actively participate on this great endeavor.

    I have several favorites – maple for the vibrant changing leaves in the fall, apple for the pretty flowers followed by yummy fruit, evergreens for staying green all year… the list could go on! 🙂

    I am stopping by as I blog hop around :o) I love trees! From a small kid, climbing on them to an adult, loving their shapes (and still have the urge to climb them! haha) I love the Japanese red maples, banyon trees, huge oak trees, palm trees, birch, fruit trees, etc! Even on my pinterest, I have a board for trees :o)

    So nice meeting you and I am adding you to my sidebar under “Da Kine Hawaiian Life…”
    My hubby’s family are mostly from the Big Island, but he has family on all the islands too.
    If you get a chance to stop by, please leave a comment so that I know you were there :o)

    Blessings & Aloha!

    Hmmm… tough to pick a fave tree.. Stacy is sooo right about apple trees, I definitely love those (apple pie anyone?)… rainbow eucalyptus trees are sooo cool with all those colours… love the evergreens for adding some greenery to an otherwise all white winter… can’t pick just one to be my favourite though 🙂
