The City of Richmond's Adopt-A-Tree Program is an opportunity for adoptive groups to undertake tree-planting activities within clearly defined City guidelines. The City would have close involvement with this program by:
- identifying locations for tree planting activities
- developing a species tree planting program including the species and specific areas appropriate for planting
- providing plant materials and equipment and assisting with the planting to ensure overall success
An adopted tree beautifies public spaces, improves the environment and air quality and enhances property values. There is also the opportunity to provide a living and long lasting legacy of a family member or friend, for a birthday, graduation, promotion, wedding, anniversary or retirement or even the death of a loved one. An adopted tree can be planted for any significant location. A certificate of recognition is provided for each adopted tree identifying the location, date of planting and tree species.
