This has been a summer full of tree destruction. Replacing a tree in your yard is not as simple as picking on you think will look pretty. The replacement needs to be appropriate for the spot. The Richmond Tree Stewards are here to help you out.
The Right Tree for Your Place
7 – 8:30 p.m. Thursday August 18
Round House, Byrd Park
(intersection of Lakeview Avenue and Strollers Lane)
Learn from Master Arborist Janine Lester how:
- to analyze your potential planting sites
