Free trees may be available to Tara-Leeway Heights residents via the 2013 Tree Canopy Fund Program. This program includes free consultation with a master gardener who will provide advice on tree selection and location. The trees are even planted on your property by a master gardener.
The Tree Canopy Fund gives grants to community groups to plant and maintain trees on private property. The fund is administered by Arlingtonians for a Clean Environment (ACE) and the Arlington County Urban Forestry Commission. Details are available at http://arlingtonenvironment.org/community-action/trees/
