Greening Our City Together
Who We Are
Richmond Trees is a group of passionate volunteers who know about the innumerable benefits of street trees and have a simple belief – that the citizens of Richmond deserve all of those benefits. We are committed to growing the urban forest to help give the Richmond community a better future. All the trees we plant are free to the residents of Richmond!
Richmond Trees is a project of Earth Island Institute.
Why Trees Matter
To put it simply, more trees equal a better, healthier, safer Richmond today and for future generations. A healthy urban forest removes harmful pollutants from the air, soil and water, adds character and pride to communities, slows traffic and decreases crime, increases property values, reduces energy consumption and provides wildlife habitat.
