We are so happy with the success of the Planting Christmas program. Alas, this year, 2019, we have decided to focus on stewarding the native landscapes we are restoring, and planting lots of trees, full time. If you’re interested in purchasing live, potted native trees (we encourage you to!), please reach out to our friends at Native Nursery in Kula.

Donʻt want to cut a tree for the holidays? Purchase or rent a live, native Christmas tree that can be planted after the holidays!
Every year for the Winter Holidays on Maui, Plant a Wish presents Planting Christmas, a live, native Christmas tree sale, native tree dedication and fundraising campaign that offers an alternative to displaying imported, cut evergreen trees in our homes and encourages people to plant native.
A variety of arrangements can be made, for locals and visitors alike. We’re happy to customize orders, and to assist in planting the trees after the holidays.
Some examples of possibilities:
- Purchase a native tree, decorate it, and plant it in your yard after the holidays
- Purchase a native tree, decorate it, and have it planted at one of our native habitat restoration sites on Maui
- Rent a native tree (great for people in apartments, or on vacation), decorate it, and weʻll pick it up when youʻre done and plant it!
