The Arlington Tree Action Group is working to stop tree destruction and to preserve trees in Arlington. They say county-staff statistics reveal that “the equivalent of the Pentagon’s footprint (~29 acres) is lost in Arlington to impervious surface every 3-4 years."
The Tree Action Group urges people to take advantage of the Arlington County Board’s open door Mondays, held every Monday every month except August and December (unless there’s a Monday holiday). These meetings offer opportunities to express your views and suggestions with elected officials. You can find more information here.
