Help us add more GREEN to our URBAN CANOPY:
Become a Richmond Tree Steward.
With our 10 week course plus hands-on-the-tree training you will learn proper pruning and planting techniques, tree biology, and tree pathology and you’ll have a better understanding of the lives of urban trees. You’ll then be well equipped to help add more green to the map, either through tree care, tree planting or educating others about the importance of trees.
Urban canopy is the layer of leaves, branches and stems that cover the ground when viewed from above. Richmonds’ canopy is at about 40%, which is considered good by some standards, but in this case more would be better! Please help us raise the bar!
