Chimborazo Park Habitat and Fruit Tree Planting

On a chilly morning in mid December Richmond Tree Stewards publicized a habitat planting in a city park with a bagels-and-coffee tailgate celebration at the site. Among the 15 or so hardy non-Tree Stewards who came by in the 40-degree weather were representatives of Dominion Virginia Power, two incoming members of the City Council, arborists and the outdoors columnist for the Richmond Times-Dispatch, Andy Thompson.  His resulting column, “Tree Stewards, volunteers impact Chimborazo Park”  in the December 14 edition, explains what he calls this “one-of-a-kind natural area” and delves into how two Tree Stewards, Jan Thomas and Heather Holub, conceived the project and executed this first step in their five-year plan.
