Connect with the land by planting your own tree

Planting your own Hawaiian Legacy Tree is an experience that uniquely connects you to the land, ecosystems, and vegetation of Gunstock Ranch and the island of O’ahu. Strolling through the rough, natural landscape, you have the opportunity to interact with many of our unique WWII historical features as well as Hawaiian historical sites such as the stone quarry. The tour culminates in the planting and dedication of your Legacy Tree in our pristine forest, surrounded by the relaxing sounds of the natural world.

Your personally selected Legacy Tree, is planted and dedicated by you in our Legacy Forest. Your tree is tracked via radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology and you’re provided with a certificate of planting that enables you to track the location and growth of your Legacy Tree throughout its lifetime. Visit FindMy.LegacyTrees.org.

A recording of you planting your Legacy Tree will be available to you and a copy will be permanently linked to your tree online (coming in 2018). This proprietary technology is only available for the Hawaiian Legacy Forest.

At Gunstock Ranch, we work hard to keep our tour groups small and intimate. This is a great activity for the entire family, ages three and up. Comfortable, sturdy walking shoes are highly recommended.
