Spring 2017 Community Tree Canopy Program


ALL 25 trees have been placed with Arlington residents.  Twenty-four trees will be planted in East Arlington and one tree outside the area.

The Arlington Tree Committee has embarked on a community tree canopy program made possible with funds from the 2012 John F. MacEachern Bequest.


The Tree Committee will sell 25 trees to Arlington residents and businesses at prices well below market value.  Purchasers will plant these trees on on private property, within 15 feet of a public street or sidewalk, and will water and care for them. The Tree Committee will deliver purchased trees and provide information on how to plant and care for them.

This year we are focusing sales on East Arlington (Hardy and Thompson school districts) because the tree canopy in this area is low.

Act now! The supply is limited!


  • Tree: White Flowering Dogwood (Cornus florida), 4-5 ft.
  • Cost:   $50.00 (retail value with delivery of $150.00)
