ArborDayRVA is coordinated each year by Reforest Richmond and the Richmond Urban Forestry Division in partnership with over a dozen local environmental groups and community organizations.

The annual event focuses tree planting efforts in previously redlined and flood-prone neighborhoods in an effort to restore tree canopy to communities most at risk of climate change.

This year’s celebration includes a tree giveaway, rain barrel workshop, tree and shrub growing, garden clean-up, invasive species removal, happy hour and more.
