On Arbor Day, Friday, April 26, 2013, Mosquito Squad, its two local franchises and its national Richmond headquarters staff, will be in Union Hill planting trees as part of their Arbor Day national day of service. They're helping restore the urban tree canopy in city neighborhoods devoid of trees.

City of Richmond Department of Public Works has been restoring sidewalks in the physical heart of Union Hill, formerly blighted areas on Cedar Street, O Street, North 23rd Street, and North 24th Street.  The City has left great tree wells for us to fill to make the new sidewalks comfortable, safe, and attractive. The improved sidewalks and trees will connect new businesses with our neighborhood and Church Hill House.

Here's the schedule: Friday, April 26, Mosquito Squad-Sponsored Arbor Day:   The two local franchises of Mosquito Squad and Richmond-based national headquarters staff will be planting between 20 to 40 trees in the new tree wells on N. 23rd and N. 24th Street…
