Join USGBC Virginia and the American Society of Landscape Architects (Virginia ASLA) as we celebrate World Landscape Architecture Month at TreeLab.

What is TreeLab, you ask? TreeLab is a non-profit operation dedicated to improving our urban environment through the addition of trees and plants. The nursery, located in a previously abandoned 1970s city greenhouse, grows native trees to increase the city’s tree canopy in areas that need it most.

In addition to trees, they are propagating historical heirloom plant varieties. Tour the 2,500-square-foot facility with us and hear about its inception, evolution, and operations, and how TreeLab's efforts relate to sustainability in the city of Richmond.
