Welcome to Sustainable Arlington

Sustainable Arlington acts on a local level to promote climate stabilization and other important environmental goals.  We are a Town of Arlington Vision 2020 Environment Committee and a chapter of the Massachusetts Climate Action Network.

Do you have ideas for ways that Arlington can reduce home and Town energy consumption, speed up the switch to renewables, and manage our environmental resources more sustainably? If you do, please come to one of our monthly meetings listed on this website.

Thanks for visiting.

Residents needed:

Learn to ID Emerald Ash Borer threatening Arlington ash trees

Free training session

Tuesday, June 5, 2018, 7:15 pm

Lyons Room, Arlington Town Hall, 730 Mass. Ave.

The Arlington Tree Committee needs residents help to identify the Emerald Ash Borer, a serious pest that is on the town borders.  If the Emerald Ash Borer comes here, it could kill some or all of Arlington’s ash trees, which make up about 10% of the town's tree canopy.

The key to containing this pest is to identify its presence as soon as possible after it arrives.

To volunteer, please attend the training session noted above.
