Help add more GREEN to our URBAN CANOPY: 

Become a Richmond Tree Steward.

The 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 more is needed   Ecosystem health (and probably our own) will be better if there are more trees in our future!

With our 10 week course plus hands-on-the-tree training  you will learn proper pruning and planting techniques, tree biology, and tree pathology. You’ll also have a better understanding of the lives of urban trees and why they matter.   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.

Questions? Contact Us.

Apply before November 25.
