Kaulunani Mission Statement
Balance the urban and natural environment by encouraging, empowering and equipping the people of Hawai`i to Malama the trees in our Aina.
The Kaulunani program has six primary goals. They are to:
- Increase the participation of the community through the cost-share grant program.
- Expand the number of partnerships developed with new organizations.
- Increase access to urban forestry information and materials.
- Expand outreach to nontraditional groups and minorities.
- Promote the use of native plants in all Kaulunani funded projects.
- Enhance the skills and technology of industry groups.
Communities, with assistance from Kaulunani, can improve the quality of life within their built environment – and foster respect for Hawai‘i’s natural heritage – through a better understanding of the role trees play in cities and neighborhoods, and by actively participating in urban forestry projects.
