Tree Stewards

The Tree Stewards are Master Gardener Volunteers who have completed the Advanced Master Gardener Tree Steward training under the auspices of Virginia Tech.  The Tree Stewards concentrate on educating not only their fellow Master Gardeners, but the larger Loudoun community on tree-related issues. They actively promote the social, economic, and mental health benefits of trees, choosing projects that serve the residents of the county. The brochure, Tree Stewards, includes benefits of trees, tips on tree selection and basic tree care.
