Arvorezinha is a municipality in the state Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.

History[edit]

The municipality's first inhabitant was Lino Figueira, established in the region c. 1900. A great part of its subsequent population were Italian immigrants from Antônio Prado, Veranópolis, Bento Gonçalves, Caxias do Sul and Garibaldi, who started colonising during the early 20th century. Before its establishment as a municipality, the land belonged to Taquari and later Encantado.
