After a successful first year, TreePhilly is back for their second year of citywide tree planting. The initiative is led by Philadelphia Parks and Recreation and supports both Greenworks Philadelphia and Plant One Million.
Greenworks Philadelphia is the city’s sustainability plan, put in order by Mayor Nutter.
The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s Plant One Million campaign is an effort focused on planting one million trees in southeastern Pennsylvania’s 13 counties, New Jersey and Delaware.
TreePhilly’s Yard Tree Program grants Philadelphia residents two trees per address to plant in their private yard. Residents must own the property where they intend to plant.
Click here to register for your two trees.
There will be nine different pick up events across the city. Each location will have professionals in attendance who are ready to help you pick out the perfect tree for your location and to teach you how to plant and care for your trees.
Pick up dates span from April 6-20. For the full schedule of dates and pick up locations, click here.
Interested Philadelphians must register by March 31 in order to be guaranteed a tree. Those who do not register may be granted a tree on a walk-in basis during the second hour of each pick up event.
Tree Philly is a collaboration between Philadelphia Parks and Recreation, Wells Fargo and the Fairmount Park Conservancy.
