Joe, Bill and Chuck…and new gravel bed

It may be December, but we are already thinking about the spring when our three newly constructed gravel beds will hold tree stock to be nurtured and planted here in Richmond. We want to give a shout out to these three hard working stewards for building the gravel beds.  This project is coming to fruition as part of Tree Stewards’ partnership with Enrichmond.

What’s a gravel bed?  It’s an irrigated bed of gravel in which to place and safely hold bare root or washed containerized tree stock for up to 3-6 months prior to planting.  Doing this significantly increases fibrous root volume and greatly improves the plant’s chances of survival.

We couldn’t be happier about the chance to add young trees to Richmond’s tree canopy. 

Thanks to everyone for your support over the last year … and Happy Holidays!!
