Graduation is just around the corner, and if you're looking for a special way to celebrate your graduate's achievements, look no further than Gunstock Ranch! One unique way to commemorate this special occasion is by planting a tree at Gunstock Ranch. Not only will you be creating a lasting memory, but you'll also be contributing to the reforestation efforts in Hawaii. And remember, as your Keiki grow, so will their tree!

Gunstock Ranch offers a selection of eco-tours that allow you to plant a tree in the Legacy Forest. During your tree planting and eco-tour, our knowledgeable guides will share the history of Hawaiian land and how your tree will contribute to healing the local ecosystem. You'll see wildlife, grazing cattle, and ocean views, and then personally plant the tree in a memorable ceremony. When you leave, you'll have made a measurable difference in the effort to create a sustainable future.

To participate in the eco-tours, you need to purchase a dedicated and trackable native tree that you want to plant, with each tree costing $120. Your payment goes directly to the non-profit Hawaiian Legacy Reforestation Initiative for the care and health of the forest. You can purchase additional trees if you like.


Every Eco-Tour is private and is customizable to your experience! During the Private Horseback Planter's Experience, you and your horse will explore scenic mountain trails, peaceful forests, open pastures, and gorgeous ocean views. You might see a variety of wildlife, like tropical birds, grazing cows, and wild pigs. This tour is suitable for ages 7 and above.

During the Private Off-Road Planter's Experience, you'll plant a native tree in the Legacy Forest and then go on a rugged off-road vehicle ride. You'll cruise down jungle paths and mountain trails, see wildlife, learn stories of the land, and maybe even try some local fruit if it's in season. At the top of the ranch, overlooking the ocean, you'll enjoy a local picnic lunch in a private and relaxing setting. This is a great time to soak up the sights and sounds and reflect on the positive legacy you've left behind by planting a native tree.

If you prefer a simpler but just as meaningful experience, you can choose the Planter's Experience. During this tour, you'll learn about the history of Hawaiian land and how planting a tree can contribute to healing the local ecosystem. You'll have the opportunity to personally plant a tree in a memorable ceremony and leave a positive impact on the environment.

Even if you can't join us at our ranch, you can still be a part of our mission. Consider dedicating a tree in honor of a loved one or special event, and receive a special e-certificate to commemorate the occasion. Each tree purchased comes with a unique GPS tracking code, so you can always stay connected and up-to-date on its growth and progress. You can GIFT A TREE or purchase a GIFTCARD!

Planting a tree at Gunstock Ranch is a meaningful and impactful way to celebrate a graduate's achievements while also contributing to the environment. With three eco-tour options available, you can choose the experience that best fits your interests and create a lasting memory for years to come.
