The City Alexandria’s Park Operations and Natural Resources Division will hold a tree sale on Saturday, April 26 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Ben Brenman Park, 4800 Brenman Park Dr. 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.

Trees and shrubs are sold in three to seven gallon containers that residents can easily handle and plant. Download the List of Available Trees or purchase and email or call the Urban Forestry Office to reserve your trees.

Residents can reserve trees for purchase in advance through Wednesday, April 23. No deposit is necessary. To reserve a tree, call the Park Operations and Natural Resources Division Office at 703.746.5499 or email dorothy.white@alexandriava.gov. When reserving your trees, please provide your name, telephone number, and the type and quantities of the tree that you plan to purchase.

Advance tree orders must be picked up between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 26. Reserved trees not picked up by 10 a.m. on the day of the sale will be made available to the public.
