County celebrates new crop of ‘notable trees’

Must Read

The Arlington County Board on May 17 recognized its latest crop of “Notable Trees,” which are being celebrated for attributes ranging from size to age to connection with local history.

They now become part of a group of more than 350 trees that have been celebrated by being designated since 1987.

The dozen trees being honored “are well-loved and contribute to the health of our Arlington tree canopy and, ultimately, the health of our community,” County Board Chairman Katie Cristol said.

All 12 trees selected for inclusion in 2022 are located on private property; the designation as a notable tree does not provide any additional protections against removal, although those designated as “Specimen Trees” (an act that requires a public hearing and formal vote) do receive protections.


Designees for 2022 by type and location include:

• Sugar Maple, 1304 N Meade St.
• Himalayan Pine, 2915 North Harrison St.
• Hackberry, 3500 Wilson Blvd.
• Redbud, 430 North Kenmore St.
• Southern Magnolia, 6322 11th Road North.
• White Pine, 4065 22nd St. North.
• White Oak, 4435 North Pershing Dr.
• Southern Red Oak, 5108 23rd Road North.
• Southern Red Oak, 430 North Norwood St.
• Water Oak, 3317 6th St. South.
• Pin Oak, 430 N Kenmore St.
• Willow Oak, Fort Myer Base near Commissary.

Arlington is home to more than 755,000 trees – or about three for every resident – comprising more than 120 species, county officials say.
