Virginia Tree Stewards Corner
Tree Stewards have been very active in 2022. Usually summer heat, poison ivy, and the prevalence of ticks, slows down the removal of invasive species, but that means there’s time to plan projects and training classes for the fall.
Richmond and Charlottesville have opened their registrations for upcoming classes. Richmond had a hugely successful Arbor Day, giving away 1,000 trees last year. They decided to double their efforts for 2022 and have purchased 2,000 trees for the next giveaway. Like several other Tree Steward groups, Richmond is working to help serve neighborhoods which have less green space. Also, together with other contributors, Richmond Tree Stewards funded the purchase of an injection system for treating Emerald Ash Borer.
Our tree steward organizations are thriving and new groups are being formed.
