Virginia's tree lovers can pre-order a specialty license plate from the Department of Motor Vehicles.
The Virginia Loves Trees plate is designed to raise awareness of the value of community trees and features a city skyline enhanced by trees.
Groups backing the proposed plate include Virginia Tech's urban forestry program, the Virginia Urban Forest Council -- also known as Trees Virginia -- and the Virginia Nursery and Landscape Association.
The DMV requires people to pre-purchase 450 plates by June 30 before it starts producing a specialty plate.
Virginia Tech said after the first 1,000 plates are sold, $15 of each $25 plate fee will go to its urban forestry program and Trees Virginia.
