As we all know, healthy urban trees moderate our temperature, improve water quality, offer food and shelter for wildlife, and even benefit our own health. Richmond Tree Stewards want to increase the canopy in Richmond city this year and we need your help!

This project is directed toward community groups which are defined as any non-profit organization, public school, private school, house of worship, or volunteer group that cares for spaces such as public parks.

Richmond Tree Stewards are giving trees to community groups (non-profit organization like schools, houses of worship, groups that care for spaces such as public parks, etc) and will be providing support to plant and care for them. This project is for property situated in the City of Richmond. The community group must complete an application.

We look forward to working with organizations interested in caring for and growing our urban canopy.
