Richmond Trees invites community to final tree planting of season

Richmond Trees recognized for caring for city's urban forest

Volunteers are encouraged to join Richmond Trees in its last Tree Planting Event of the 2018-2019 season this Sunday, March 31.

The grassroots group that is beautifying the city one tree at a time plans to meet at Burg Park, 2910 Clinton Ave., at 9 a.m. Volunteers will break up into groups to plant trees for residents who have been awaiting their new street trees.

“We cannot think of a better way to spend the morning on a perfect, Spring day,” organizers said.

Richmond Trees is on a mission to grow a healthy urban forest that covers at least 40-percent of the city and is cared for by partnerships between community organizations and the City of Richmond. To learn more, visit its website here.
