2022 Fall Out Planting Season Updates

This year we have over 35,000 native seedlings of Māmane, Koa, ‘Iliahi, and A’ali’i to plant at the different restoration sites on Mauna Kea. With the help of our community volunteers we have planted over 19,000 trees in the spring from April to May. The plants are looking healthy and strong at the Waimea State Nursery and are ready to be planted on the Mauna.
