The Museum District Association is doing its part to help neighborhood residents add some more shade to the neighborhood by splitting the bill for new trees through August 15th, the association said in an email to residents.
From the MDA newsletter:
The MDA will contribute $25 of the required $50 tax deductible contribution for MDA members who wish to participate in this year’s program. Applications must be post-marked by Monday, August 15. Applications postmarked after that date will be returned. Trees will be planted later this fall or in the spring, depending upon the species. Participants in the program agree to water the tree for the first two years as outlined in the application. More information may be found on the City of Richmond’s website.
The tree canopy in Richmond is one of the most vital aspects of urban living. Trees help keep houses and yards cool, improve air quality, absorb rainwater, and help boost property values.
To participate, residents must mail a completed Adpot-A-Tree application with a check enclosed for $25 (payable to the MDA) no later than Monday, August 15th. Mail to Adopt A Tree, P.O. Box 7186 Richmond, VA 23221.
