Public Works’ Urban Forestry Division is currently responsible for planting approximately 2,000 new and replacement trees each planting season – between November 1st and April 15th. They also maintain approximately 110,000 city-owned trees of more than 80 species that provide shade, greenery, and character to our neighborhoods, streets, and parks.
City of Richmond residents can participate in the Adopt-A-Tree Program by making a tax-deductible contribution to the Enrichmond Foundation which will go toward planting a new tree or trees. Additionally, participants agree to water the tree for the first two years as outlined in the Application/Citizen Tree Maintenance Agreement. Trees are planted November through the end of April. For additional information please contact the city’s customer care center at 804-646-7000.
