Tree planting help needed in Arlington

A message from Vincent Verweij:

The Arlington Tree Stewards has had a great response for the planting this weekend, but they still have some slots open. Here are the details and the link:

Join Casey Trees and the City of Arlington as we add 27 trees to Butler Holmes Park (101 S Barton St).


  • All volunteers must sign a completed volunteer waiver form before participating. Children under 18 years of age must have their parent or legal guardian sign a consent form and be supervised by an adult at all times. Waivers will be provided but to ease the registration process it is helpful to bring a completed copy to the event.
  • No specific skills required. Each event starts with a tool safety and care demonstration.
  • Register in advance. Space is limited. If your plans change prior to the event, please update your registration status so we are sure to have the necessary number of volunteers.
  • Arrive on time. Check-in opens a half hour prior to the indicated start time and volunteers must be present for the tool safety demonstration at the start of the event.
  • Dress comfortably and appropriately for the weather. Closed toe shoes are required.

Getting There:

Once you arrive at the park, look for registration under the large metal gazebo.

Public Transportation: The 42 and 77 Metrobus lines service this neighborhood.

Parking: There is ample street parking nearby.
