Got a green thumb?
Alexandria’s Park Operations and Natural Resources Division will hold a tree sale from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 20 at Ben Brenman Park, 4800 Brenman Park Dr. The sale aims to promote the preservation of Alexandria’s tree canopy by encouraging the planting of trees on private property throughout the city.
The city’s tree supplier, Denison Landscaping and Nursery of Fort Washington, Md., will again provide a variety of trees, shrubs and annuals that are hardy and successful in this area. Trees and shrubs are sold in three- to seven-gallon containers that residents can easily handle and plant.
Check out the list of available trees for purchase. City residents can reserve trees in advance through April 17. No deposit is needed.
