Trees Virginia has been working with the urban forestry faculty at Virginia Tech to develop a new public outreach initiative—the Virginia Loves Trees specialty license plate. The Virginia Tech Urban Forestry Program team of Dr. Eric Wiseman and Dr. Susan Day has overseen the design of the new license plate and accompanying website.
The first step in the process of official adoption of a new license plate design by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is achieving a pre-sale quota of 450 plates.
If you are interested in this new plate, please visit the Virginia Loves Trees web site www.valovestrees.org to apply for and pre-purchase the new license plate.
Once the quota is met, General Assembly Sponsor Delegate Joe Johnson (D)—4th District, will submit a Bill to the General Assembly early in the 2012 Session to authorize adoption of the license plate by the DMV.
This is an excellent opportunity to raise awareness of landscape trees and urban forests among Virginia’s citizens.
