We have collaborated with University of Hawaii Professor, Norman Bezona, to offer these exclusive tours to the public.

This region we are located is at the top of the Kona Mountain Range. It is very remote and not seen by many people.

When you put your hands on the trunk of the Eucalyptus Deglupta tree you will feel the majesty and strenth.

You will learn about a variety of different varieties of trees and plants during your tour of this magical and mystery forest of trees.

Honeymooner's Jeremy and April were curious about these Eucalyptus Deglupta trees. They scheduled a tour before they arrived to Hawaii. They thought there was no way that trees like this really exist. Intriqued they asked to see the trees in person. Understandably, they believed the photo colors were manipulated. The moment they saw the trees in person they could not believe what they were seeing. They asked what they could do to help the foundation. We just told them to just spread the word that we are out here educating, planting and saving these beautiful trees. Leave A Legacy of Color! tm

If you are visting the Big Island of Hawaii and would like to see these beautiful trees give us call at (877) 888-6111 or email us PainteTreesHawaii@Gmail.com

Saturday, June 18th 2016, 9 to 11 AM - Punalu'u Bakery - Upper Pavilion - 5642 Mamalahoa Highway, Na'alehu Hawaii - Following the event with be a guided tour and hiking in the mountains. - Mr. Dunn will be speaking about his life, photography, the eucalyptus deglupta trees and his non profit foundation, The Painted Trees of Hawaii. ‪#‎TalkStory‬ ‪#‎HILT‬ ‪#‎PaintedTreesHawaii‬ ‪#‎KellyDunn‬

The Hawaiian Islands Land Trust is a worthy organization. Their mission is to purchase land and maintain it into perpetuity. The land they purchase is placed into their trust which prevents any development and/or overdevelopment of the land. Please visiti their website for more information - www.HILT.Org

Our mission is simple: To protect the lands that sustain us for current and future generations.

Our promise, audacious: Perpetuity.

What sustains you: snorkeling, surfing or a great day at the beach; getting good and dirty restoring a taro lo‘i or native forest; locally grown food; a quiet walk in nature; shoreline fishing with friends and family; enjoying the iconic island scenery during your daily commute? Perhaps its reconfirming our shared identity as the People of Hawai‘i through visiting cultural and archeological sites and learning the stories of the life of the land?
In Hawai‘i, the things that sustain us are quite literally all around us, all gifts from the land, and all in dire need of permanent protection through conservation. With your help, we can make this happen.

International Day of Forests

March 21st

Jenna Stone - Actress/Spokesperson - The Painted Trees of Hawaii Foundation

My name is Jenna Stone, I live and work in Los Angeles, California as a writer and actor, and I am so thrilled to announce my involvement as the spokesperson for The Painted Trees of Hawaii Foundation as my newest project and adventure.

This non-profit organization really spoke to me as anyone who knows me, knows how important wildlife preservation is to me and how I believe we should all be working together to do what we can to keep this planet thriving and beautiful.

Through a twist of fate, I met with CEO Kelly Dunn before joining the team, and discussed how we could work together to get the word out about these beautiful, natural phenomenons.

In the near future we will be working on and releasing different kinds of educational projects and videos that help capture just how important these trees are, what we're doing to preserve them and how you can help.

Together we can help save these trees and our planet.

Sincerely,
Jenna Stone

Noman Bezona, Kona Forest Cloud Founder

Painted Trees of Hawaii spent the day with Norman Bezona. We learned so much about tropical trees from around the world. The Kona Cloud Forest is available for private tours to small groups and organizations. Mr. Bezona has been instrumental in creating awareness of trees and their relation to humans. He is truly the stewart of the all living species of the planet Earth. As the saying on his shirt states, "May The Forest Be With You" Thank you Noman for a great day!
