Richmond Tree Stewards take care of the trees in the city and they’re always looking to add more trees through their Community Roots program. If you meet the requirements the Tree Stewards will help pick an appropriate (most likely native) tree for your spot and help you get started.
Richmond Tree Stewards are giving trees to schools, houses of worship, public parks, and community non-profit organizations again in 2018 and providing support to 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.
