Private Property Tree Planting Programs

Arlington County is striving to increase our tree canopy by facilitating the planting of trees on private property through two programs: the Tree Distribution program and the Tree Canopy Fund. The Annual Fall Free Tree Distribution allows residents one free tree per residential property. The Tree Canopy Fund provides for planting trees to restore and increase Arlington’s tree cover, giving grants to community groups to plant and maintain trees on private property.
