In 1975, the Hawai`i Legislature passed the Exceptional Tree Act (Act 105) to protect designated trees — both public and private — from improper trimming and unnecessary removal.
Today, The Outdoor Circle is helping to grow this list of protected trees and document their positive impact on our local environment. They are calling this the “Exceptional Tree Initiative.”
Where are Hawai`i’s Exceptional Trees?
There are hundreds of Exceptional Trees found throughout the Hawaiian Islands. The Outdoor Circle is developing this database of currently recognized and nominated Exceptional Trees.
