How Danville residents can adopt a tree this month

DANVILLE, Va. – Danville Parks and Recreation and Dan River Basin Association are teaming up to offer a tree adoption program.

The program allows residents to improve their parks by planting and caring for young trees.

It began last summer with a poplar tree sapling, named Philippe, that was donated by Plant Virginia Natives. The sapling was planted in a bare area of ​​Grove Park and cared for by a nearby resident.

A tree planting kickoff event will take place on April 27 at 3 pm in Grove Park.

Both organizations will be present to provide instruction for planting and ongoing care.

Participants will also be able to paint river rocks to leave with their trees.

Sign-ups for tree adoptions can be done by emailing Dr. Stephanie Lovely, Facilities and Services Planner.
