Free or low-cost plants and services

State code prevents jurisdictions from providing goods and services directly to private landowners, so these usually go through intermediaries (e.g. EcoAction Arlington, Fairfax ReLeaf)

Jurisdictions can provide services directly to common interest properties.

Soil and Water Districts and Virginia Department of Forestry do not have this restriction.

Tree Preservation and Planting Fund

Tree planting grants available for planting on any land officially designated as open common space, including schools, HOAs, condo associations, faith communities in Fairfax County.
