Fredericksburg gaining trees
Tree Fredericksburg and Dominion Virginia Power are teaming up to plant 95 trees at three city locations on Oct. 25.
Two years ago, Dominion donated $10,000 to Tree Fredericksburg as part of its Right Tree, Right Place initiative. Volunteers will plant trees in spots that won’t endanger people, power lines and utility equipment.
The trees will be planted along Cowan Boulevard, near the Old Walker–Grant School site, and the Boys & Girls Club of Fredericksburg.
Tree Fredericksburg is a local nonprofit, founded in 2008. It has planted more than 3,000 trees in the city.
