Strengthening Hawaii's urban forest through creating a greater awareness to the value of our Exceptional Trees and cultural landscape.

Act 105

"Exceptional Trees" by reason of age, rarity, location, size, aesthetic quality, endemic status or historical and cultural significance may be designated by the County Arborist Committee as worthy of preservation.

The Exceptional Trees Ordinance Act 105 was enacted by the Hawaii State Legislature in 1975. This Act requires the counties, who possess primary control over land development, to safeguard the exceptional trees from injury or destruction. The listing process includes submission of a nomination form and presentation to the Mayor's Arborist Advisory Committees.
