City Hosts Tree Sale to Encourage Robust Alexandria Tree Canopy

Tree varieties for sale have been selected for their hardiness to this area.

The city's Urban Forestry section will hold a tree sale on Oct. 20 from 8 a.m. to noon at the Trinity Methodist Church, 2911 Cameron Mills Rd.

The sale seeks to promote the preservation of Alexandria’s tree canopy by encouraging the planting of trees on private property throughout the city.

Denison Landscaping and Nursery of Fort Washington, Md., will 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 designed to make it easy for residents to handle and plant. See the list of available trees (attached PDF) for purchase and email or call the city arborist to reserve your trees.

Residents can reserve trees for purchase in advance through Oct. 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 Oct. 20. Reserved trees not picked up by 10 a.m. on the day of the sale will be made available to the public.

For additional information, call the Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities’ Arborist office at 703-746-5498.
