TreeLab is here to beautify, improve, and inform the City of Richmond through ornamental plant production, planting, and education, with a focus on native species.
TreeLab produces high-quality beautification plants and connects citizens to the benefits of Richmond’s natural urban environment through information distribution, access to horticultural expertise, collaborative projects, and workforce development opportunities.
Our first goal to grow and plant trees, shrubs, and perennials aligns with the City of Richmond’s vision to create a greener, healthier city. Trees and beautification plants have proven benefits to a city’s ecosystem, including reduced utilities costs, improved quality of life, and mitigation of environmental issues related to urbanization.
Our goals also include citizen education and access. We want to inform citizens of the benefits of trees and other beautification plants, increase access to native and locally grown plant species, and serve as a community resource. TreeLab’s doors are open to the public and will provide workshops, resources for collaborative projects, and workforce development through paid internships. TreeLab endeavors to be a one-stop-shop for finding native, locally grown beautification plants, information on how to plant them, and educational activities related to plant care and benefits.
It starts with a park.
