To restore and maintain a vibrant urban forest in the City of Fredericksburg.
If you are in the neighborhood of 42 Jackie Robinson Way, stop by to check out the fabulous new look at the ballpark with dozens of native shrubs including Red Twig Dogwoods, Black Chokeberries, Grey Owl Junipers, beauty berries, and ink berries, to name a few varieties of the shrubs planted. In addition to beautifying the stadium, they will provide shelter for birds and the berry bushes will help feed the overwintering populations of bluebirds, cardinals, and other native birds in our community. Over forty local high school students volunteered to plant just shy of 500 mostly native shrubs, creating a grand entrance to the Fredericksburg Nationals (FredNats) Stadium the morning of Saturday, October 30th. Many family members joined the students too. With the guidance of more than a dozen Tree Fredericksburg Tree Stewards, in just 3 hours, all the shrubs were safely planted, many around the parking lots and on the side of the ballpark as well.
