Rethink Energy: Free Trees!

This regularly-scheduled sponsored Q&A column is written by the Arlington Initiative to Rethink Energy team (AIRE). This county program helps you make smart energy decisions that save you money and leaves a lighter footprint on the environment. Got a question? Email us at [email protected]!

With a record number of 90-degree days in August and a toasty September, this has been one of the warmest summers on record for Arlington.

No need to get hot and bothered — plant a (free) tree. Trees cast shade on buildings and pavement, lowering the temperatures and thus reducing demand for power to cool these buildings during hot times of the year. Planting the right trees in the right places can keep your house and community cooler in the summer and reduce your energy bills.

As the weather begins to turn cool and crisp, now is the time to think about planting trees. Arlington County is giving away one free tree per residential property with the Annual Fall Free Tree Distribution program, while supplies last.

TreeSteward members and Arlington County landscape staff will be on hand to help participants. Educational materials, such as tree care and maintenance and planting guidelines, will be available.

These trees get snapped up quickly! What are you waiting for? Click here for more info, reserve your tree, and help keep Arlington a cool place to live, work and play.
