Community Roots – Let’s Plant Some Trees!

 

Tree Care Workshop Saturday, October 21:  Get Information and Application here

 

 

Get our tips for Selecting Trees for Urban Landscapes

and for Planning a Community Tree Planting Project

 As of September 29, 2017  the trees for this program are “sold out”

Home Owners:  Get Information and Application here 

  • We will provide trees for homeowners in the City of Richmond with a limit of 2 trees per property.
  • Trees will be available in November – a great time to plant trees.  The applicant will need to pick up their trees on one of two designated dates.
  • We will provide you with planting and tree care information, but you are responsible for planting your trees.
  • The homeowner program does not supply trees to be planted as street trees.

 

 Community Groups:  Applications for this portion of the program closed on August 31.   Those who applied may contact the tree steward working with them if there are questions.

NOTE:  All recipients are expected to water the tree for the first 2 growing seasons.  Water is the single most critical factor for the success of newly planted trees in urban areas.

This project is made possible thanks to a grant from the Overton and Katherine Dennis Fund.
