The first phase is entirely funded by the Charlottesville Area Tree Stewards, and trees are being purchased from Bremo nursery, which is donating one of the Swamp White Oaks.
Working in the median is challenging.
These trees will help to retain rainwater, create habitat and food for birds, clean the air, and improve the scenery along this roadway.
To become a tree steward, you must first complete the training class. The class is a 10-week course consisting of lectures on a variety of topics as well as several field trips with information on tree identification and pruning techniques.
