The Arlington County Department of Parks and Recreation is providing 500 young native trees to Arlington residents at no cost this fall. The trees you plant are part of our mission to expand and enhance Arlington’s urban tree canopy. The available trees are generally termed “whips” in the nursery trade and are in two-gallon containers ranging from 2–4 feet in size. This annual program is very popular and has yielded many beautiful trees and benefited our community.
