TREE INVENTORY
 

An inventory of Arlington's street trees was conducted in 2017 to determine the number of town trees, their valuation, and their condition. The inventory is also used by the Town for tree maintenance and management. The results can be seen in the Public Tree Inventory Map

TREE PLANTING
 

 

There are several ways residents can help to enhance the tree canopy in their neighborhood:

  • Request a street tree

  • Purchase a tree via the Community Canopy Program

  • Plant a tree on your own property
