The Community Roots Tree giveaway was held this past Saturday. We had a fantastic response and thanks to a grant from the Overton and Katherine Dennis Foundation, we were able to offer 104 trees free of charge for Richmond City residents who applied. Recipients picked up their trees in Byrd Park on Arbor Day. The Arbor Day program also included our Community Roots Tree Care Workshop, a tree planting and tree pruning demonstration, a guided tree walk in Byrd Park. We wrapped up by reading the formal Richmond Arbor Day Proclamation signed by Mayor C. Dwight Jones to make it official!
