Trees for Free
Arlington’s Department of Parks and Recreation will distribute up to 500 young native trees to Arlington residents at no cost. The goal is to enhance Arlington’s urban tree canopy. These “trees” are “whips” ranging from 2–4 feet tall and are potted in two-gallon containers.
For more details and to sign up for a tree go to the County Website. Sign up for trees starts Sept 7. Only one tree per residential property.
In 50 years these tiny trees may grow to be as large as a mature tree that some developer is cutting down today.
