Community Roots Arbor Day Celebration

Here in Richmond we celebrate Arbor Day in October because fall is the perfect time to plant trees.

Please join us for a workshop on Oct. 21 at the Round House in Byrd Park. The doors open at 8:30, the program begins at 9:00 and ends at about 12 noon.

Our FREE workshop will include

  • A lecture about tree benefits: Measuring the Value of Trees.  Our speaker is Janine Lester, a Tree Steward and outstanding speaker who holds credentials as an ISA Certified Arborist Municipal Specialist®, ISA Board Certified Master Arborist® and has ISA Tree Risk Assessment Qualification.
  • A tree planting demonstration.  (We know you will want to plant trees after you hear Janine speak and we will show you the best techniques for doing that.)
  • A pruning demonstration.  (We know you will want to take good care of your tree.)
  • And a tree walk just to enjoy the trees!
  • The Arbor Day Proclamation and DOOR PRIZES!
