Let’s Plant Some Trees

Schools, “Friends of Parks” groups, houses of worship, and other non-profits in the City of Richmond…

Richmond Tree Stewards would like to help you put down some roots in your community with our Community Roots program.  We provide the trees along with support and education; you plant and care for them.

Healthy urban trees moderate our temperature, improve water quality, offer food and shelter for wildlife, and even benefit our own health.    Tree Stewards look forward to working with organizations interested in caring for and growing our urban canopy.

Application deadline is August 31, 2017
