Henrico County is partnering with Henrico County Public Schools (HCPS) and the nonprofit organization Capital Trees on a program to expand and strengthen tree canopies at the county’s parks and schools.
Officials announced the reforestation program today at Deep Run Park, a 165-acre, wooded park on Ridgefield Parkway that is one of four sites selected for the program’s pilot phase. The other locations are Cheswick Park, a 24.5-acre, wooded park on Forest Avenue that recently closed for a $2.1 million renovation, as well as a middle school and a high school in eastern Henrico with currently limited tree cover. The school sites will be chosen soon.Read More
