Celebrate Native Trees Month
October 2023

Garden centers and other organizations throughout Northern Virginia 

promoting native trees and shrubs.

Why shrubs?

Why is a tree campaign talking about native shrubs? The shrub layer is an essential part of the ecosystem, provding food and nesting sites for many animals. For other benefits such as stormwater capture, the only difference between a native tree and a native shrub is one of degree.
