2014 Hawaii Arbor Day Tour

TreeCircus Holds Hawaii Arbor Day Performances for Local Elementary School Students

TreeCircus held its third annual Hawaii Arbor Day Tour November 5-8, 2014 for local school children and the general public. The events engaged students with a rollicking, interactive show about the benefits of trees in our communities.  This was the first event of its kind on Maui – it has only been held on Oahu in the past.

TreeCircus, the performing moniker of edu-tainer Timmy Womick, helps students understand how their local trees can lower the temperature and raise their spirits. Throughout assembly, participants learn about trees, the value of trees, and why we should plant more of them.   Most importantly, the students learn how they can grow up to be arborists themselves!

This program is sponsored by the US Forest Service and the Western Chapter of the International Society of Arboriculture, and is locally supported by the Aloha Arborist Association and Maui Green and Beautiful. Additional funding has been provided by the Kaulunani Urban and Community Forestry Program of the DLNR Division of Forestry and Wildlife; and State and Private Forestry, branch of the U.S. Forest Service, Department of Agriculture, Region 5 for educational materials, The Britton Fund for a third day of assemblies, and SGS Hawaii Inc Landscape for advertising.

This institution is an equal opportunity provider and employer.
