TreePhilly is a new tree-planting initiative led by Philadelphia Parks & Recreation that helps property owners, businesses and neighborhood residents to improve their communities by planting and maintaining trees. TreePhilly continues Parks & Recreation’s ongoing commitment to greening Philadelphia and supports both the City’s Greenworks Philadelphia plan and the regional Plant One Million campaign. Through TreePhilly’s Yard Tree Program,Philadelphiaresidents can receive a FREE tree! Residents can request one tree per address, to be planted on their private land. Pickup days will occur during the week of April 22nd to 28th throughout the City. You will be contacted in March with more information about dates and locations. This program is for private yard trees only (front, back, and side yards). If you are interested in a street tree or want to learn more about the Yard Tree Program, including tree species and size information, please visit www.treephilly.org.
