Heeding the call of the trees

The Richmond Tree Stewards are looking for a few good men and women who are interested in and care about Richmond’s urban canopy to take their 10-week official tree-steward course. From their website:

The Urban tree canopy  provides  health, cultural, economic and environmental benefits for all.    With citizen support, Richmond can have the vibrant urban canopy we need to provide these benefits.

Richmond needs more tree stewards in more places. Every neighborhood, community organization, and “friends of a park”  group should have at least one tree steward. Does yours?

Our goal is 30 new active members. Classes begin in January. Space is limited.  

Our 10 week Tree Steward course includes tree biology, identification, and pathology and will give you the latest information on tree care, planting and pruning techniques. You’ll  also learn about watersheds, soils and the challenges our urban trees face. This will prepare you to become a volunteer with Richmond Tree Stewards and be part of a growing organization  that is making positive contributions to our communities.
