*CANCELLED* TreeTopia 2021

November 6, 2021, 11:00 AM - 3:00 PM


Fall is the best time to plant trees in the Hampton Roads area and the City Council has a goal to increase tree canopy in Virginia Beach to 45%.  Currently the tree canopy of VB is 39%. 

In order to reach that goal, it is important to educate our community on how trees directly benefit them and empower tree planting one tree at a time where feasible
