Arlington County is working to restore its tree canopy. Sometimes it has to call on its volunteers to do the dirty work.
The Tree Stewards of Arlington and Alexandria are happy to do the job. The group of dedicated volunteers plants trees on public land, educates the community on growing trees, and advocates for green space.
This fall alone, the Tree Stewards has planted about 300 trees. The group planned on planting 900, but the ice and snow in early November steered it a little off track. Arlington County contractors picked up the rest of the job.
