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. TreeTopia is a P&R & Lynnhaven River Now collaboration that will be a fun celebration for all ages!

 About the Event

It's a TREE-Mendous celebration of trees! Join Parks & Rec, and our partner, Lynnhaven River Now, for a celebration of all things trees.
