What is the Forestry and Natural Resources Plan?

Good question. Arlington is developing a Forestry and Natural Resources Plan that will be the blueprint for stewarding our natural resources in the coming years.

The plan is an update to the 2004 Urban Forest Master Plan, the 2010 Natural Resources Management Plan, and addresses many topics including: impacts and opportunities related to Arlington’s tree canopy, natural lands, urban development, wildlife, recreation, public education and stewardship among others.

Thank you for taking the time to support Arlington’s forests and natural resources.
