City of Alexandria to Hold Annual Fall Tree Sale on Saturday, October 20
"Great Trees, Great Prices, and Great for Alexandria"

The City Alexandria’s Urban Forestry Section will hold a tree sale on Saturday, October 20 from 8 a.m. to noon at the Trinity Methodist Church, 2911 Cameron Mills Road. The goal of the sale is to promote the preservation of the Alexandria’s tree canopy by encouraging the planting of trees on private property throughout the City.

The City’s tree supplier, Denison Landscaping and Nursery of Fort Washington, Maryland, will again provide a variety of trees, shrubs and annuals that are hardy and successful in this area. Trees and shrubs are sold in three to seven gallon containers that residents can easily handle and plant. Download the List of Available Trees for purchase and email or call the City Arborist to reserve your trees.

Residents can reserve trees for purchase in advance through October 17. No deposit is necessary. To reserve a tree, call the City Arborist Office, at 703.746.5498 or email dorothy.white@alexandriava.gov. When reserving your trees, please provide your name, telephone number, and the type and quantities of the tree that you plan to purchase.

Advance tree orders must be picked up between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. on Saturday, October 20. Reserved trees not picked up by 10 a.m. on the day of the sale will be made available to the public.
