It’s time to request street trees in Arlington

A limited number of trees are available for planting in Arlington this fall. Each year, the town plants some street trees as a way to reduce noise, help with heating and cooling costs, and increase property values. Residents may request that trees be planted on certain streets. However, they are expected to water the tree for the first two years until it is established. Trees will be planted based on availability, and all locations will be approved by the Tree Division. Trees can be requested via the Request/Answer Center on the town’s website at www.arlingtonma.gov.
