This fall, the James River Association (JRA) is offering free trees. You can receive up to $200 per home for each tree planted on your property.
This tree incentive program is only open to Richmond residents. Reimbursements are available September through November 2014. To qualify, homeowners must be an existing River Hero Home or submit an application to become a new River Hero Home.
River Hero Homes is JRA’s certification program that recognizes homeowners who are successfully taking steps to improve water quality by reducing the amount of stormwater and pollution leaving their property. To become certified, JRA requires homeowners to install a river-friendly practice, such as planting trees or installing a rain barrel, as well as follow some simple everyday actions to reduce pollution— such as picking up after your pet or planting native plants.
Tree reimbursements are available on a first-come, first-serve basis and will be available until funding runs out. Click here or more info and to find out if your property qualifies.
