Over the past three years the Richmond Tree Stewards have help plant and maintain trees in Petronius Jones Park and Thomas Square.
Their mission is to promote and improve the health of city trees to assure the city’s forest will survive and thrive. This is accomplished by increasing public awareness through community education, planning and planting for the future, and providing maintenance and care for young trees on streets and in parks. Tree Stewards work closely with Urban Forestry and with other organizations interested in the health of our community forest.
If are interested in learning more about trees the Richmond Tree Steward offer a 10 week course that will begin in January that is packed with information and delivered by excellent speakers. Unfortunately, the financial assistance deadline passed on Nov. 29th. The course fee is $120 and is worth every penny. Classes meet on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-8:30pm.
