‘Iliahi Tree Cultivation Sponsorship – Keiki (Child) Donor

Sponsorship of planting an ‘Iliahi tree

• ‘Iliahi (Hawaiian Sandalwood) cultivation of seedling for planting
• Site Preparation for the planting of a seedling

This level of sponsorship sponsors the cultivation of seedling in the greenhouse. Preparing the land for the trees planting is vital for the seedlings survival. The ground needs to cleared of invasive grasses and weeds. An auger is used to break up the soil and prepare the land for planting. Each tree is placed in a precise grid, 15 feet apart from each other ensuring a long life and successful growth. We encounter a unique situation with the `Iliahi, being a nitrogen dependent species, the `Iliahi grid will require a partner tree be planted within 3 feet. We utilize Koa, A’alii or Māmane as a host. We appreciate your support as this tax deductible donation through the non-profit, Saving Hawai’i’s Forests 501 (c)(3).
