The City of Alexandria Offers Individuals Opportunities to Assist in the Restoration of the City’s Tree Canopy

The City of Alexandria experienced the loss of hundreds of trees and extensive damage throughout the City as a result of winter snow and summer thunderstorms in 2010.  Residents, who want to help replenish the City’s tree canopy, should consider the following opportunities:

  • Make a donation to the Living Landscape Fund of Alexandria
    The Living Landscape Fund supports the City in realizing its goal of beautification, enhancing open space and maintaining the City’s tree canopy. A donation will contribute to future tree planting in City parkland.  Any dollar amount is appropriate and the donation is tax deductible. For more information on the City’s Living Landscape Program, call the City’s Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities Park Planning Division at 703.746.5490 or email judy.lo@alexandriava.gov.
  • Request a street tree through the Street Tree Planting Program
    If you have lost a City street tree in front of your home or in your neighborhood, and are interested in having the tree replanted, requests can be made to the Street Tree Planting Program.  Requests should include the nearest address and street for the tree, and your contact information.  Email requests to city.arborist@alexandriava.gov.   All requests are subject to review and approval by the City Arborist. Additional information on tree types may be found by visiting alexandriava.gov/18902.
  • Purchase a tree from the City Tree Sale on October 23
    For residents planning to replace trees on private property which were lost or damaged this year, the City Arborist office is sponsoring a tree sale on October 23, 2010 at George Washington Middle School.  A variety of trees will be available at a reduced cost, and tree planting services are available at a nominal cost.  For more information on the tree sale contact the City Arborist Office at 703.746.5496 or email jerry.dieruf@alexandriava.gov.

For additional information, call the Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities at 703.746.4343 or visit alexandriava.gov/recreation.
