City of Alexandria Fall Tree Sale - Oct. 23

The City of Alexandria Urban Forestry Steering Committee will hold its 6th Annual Fall Tree Sale Saturday, October 23 "Great Trees, Great Prices, and Great for Alexandria".

The sale will run from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the George Washington Middle School, 1005 Mt. Vernon Ave. The goal of the sale is to promote the preservation of the Alexandria’s tree canopy by encouraging the planting of trees on private property throughout the City. Alexandria Tree Stewards and Master Gardeners will be on site to answer questions about tree selection, planting and care.

The City’s tree supplier, Denison Landscaping and Nursery of Ft. Washington, Md., will provide the same varieties of trees the City plants in three to fifteen gallon containers. Trees will be sold at below retail market prices to encourage private planting in Alexandria, a major goal of the UFSC.
