2019 Community Tree Canopy Program

The Arlington Tree Committee has embarked on a subsidized tree-planting program made possible with funds from the Town of Arlington’s Trees Please Fund.  This program is managed by the Arlington Tree Committee, and is not related to ongoing street tree planting managed by Arlington’s DPW.

When you plant the right tree in the right place, it can help improve air and water quality, manage storm water runoff, sequester carbon, provide shade to buildings and streets, and make neighborhoods more enjoyable. It’s a win for you and the town!
