The City of Arlington, TX Parks and Rec department is looking for groups of 10 to 50 home owners/renters who live in Arlington to receive and plant 2 five gallon trees each in their yards or in city medians in the fall.
Basically over the past several years the city has lost 600 trees in its medians due to accidents, disease, and construction.
They need to know to whom they will give them by Arbor Day in May. They plan to have them available in the fall. You can contact the Parks Department or me if you want to help me create a group. 20 years ago I led a group to plant 1,500 saplings along I-20 only to see the Texas DOT mow them down four months later. The City is looking into taking over the medians along I-20 so that type of situation would not happen again, but this project is for homes and medians "inside" the city.
