Saturday, October 29, 2022 | 11am – 3pm | Mt. Trashmore
Join us Saturday September 24th 10-3 at Hampton Roads Agricultural Research and Extension Center. Located at 1444 Diamond Springs Road VB.
Join the Friends of Live Oaks this fall and you will get a free live oak sapling as long as the trees last!
We have lots of little saplings looking for a home. We had planned to give these trees to new members at the tree celebration, TreeTopia, at Mount Trashmore that was recently rained out.
Dues are $25 for individuals and $100 for a business or community group.
Mail a check, payable to Friends of Live Oaks, c/o Clay Bernick, 214 A 84th Street, Virginia Beach Va. 23451.
Give us your name, cell number/email and address and we’ll bring a live oak to you!!!
To prove her point, Sarah refers to the “State of the Urban Forestry” report by Virginia Beach Parks and Recreation for 2015-16, which states the city’s urban tree canopy was 38 percent based on 2012 data, and that American Forests recommends a minimum of 40 percent. In response, the city adopted a 45 percent goal over the next 20 years.
“I made it my goal to help increase that percentage,” she said.
