Fall TreePhilly Yard Tree Giveaway registration open!
Registration must be received by Oct. 19 for fall plantings
Tree Philly is a tree planting initiative from Philadelphia Parks & Recreation in partnership with Wells Fargo and Fairmount Park Conservancy that directly engages Philadelphia property owners, business, and neighborhood residents to improve their communities by planting and maintaining trees.
More trees mean lower costs, safer communities, and a better Philadelphia. Planting trees in the fall helps to support root growth and establishment, while saving on energy costs. Trees reduce runoff and flooding and increase property values.
This fall, residents are eligible to receive up to two free trees per address. Last spring, residents in Philadelphia received over 2,000 trees through Tree Philly.
To register for your FREE yard or street tree, please go to www.treephilly.org. Or, contact Erica Smith, Tree Philly manager, at 215-683-0217 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your request.
