The UFC provides the County Board with advice and recommendations to improve the health and sustainability of Arlington’s urban forest, including:
- Programs and policies for the planting and maintenance of trees on public property,
- The preservation or restoration of trees and other native vegetation in wooded parks and other County-owned natural areas, and
- The preservation and planting of trees associated with development and infrastructure improvement projects.
The UFC also helps facilitate recommendations contained in Arlington’s Urban Forest Master Plan (UFMP). The commission also promotes the planting and maintenance of trees on private property, assisting with public education and outreach through programs such as Tree City USA, Arbor Day, and the Tree Canopy Fund Grant Program.
