Community Tree Canopy Program

Arlington’s Community Tree Canopy Program 2020


The Arlington Tree Committee has embarked on its fourth year of a subsidized tree planting program made possible with funds from the Arlington Department of Public Works’ Trees Please Fund.

When you plant the right tree in the right place, it can help improve air and water quality, manage stormwater runoff, sequester carbon, attract wildlife, help save you money on utility bills, and make neighborhoods more enjoyable. It’s a win for you and the town!

This program is managed by the Arlington Tree Committee and is not related to the town’s ongoing street tree planting managed by Arlington’s DPW.
