TreePhilly Yard Tree Giveaway
Get up to TWO FREE TREES for your yard this Fall through the TreePhilly Yard Tree Giveaway! Pre-register for your trees here by October 19th, then come pick up your tree at the Yard Tree Giveaway event, where you will learn how to properly plant and care for your new tree. You must own property in Philadelphia and plant the trees in the ground in your private yard space, not in the sidewalk outside of your property. If you don’t pre-register, you can still get a tree by attending one of the giveaways as a walk-in. Walk-ins will be accepted in the second hour of the event, only at the giveaway event assigned to your zip code (this is to ensure that we will have enough trees for everyone!).

In addition, we recently received word that TreePhilly is the featured project for a new fundraising tool that the City is piloting – Citizinvestor. Citizinvestor is a crowd sourced fundraising website where citizens of a municipality can donate to projects that they would like to see happen in their city, such as TreePhilly. Our target for TreePhilly is $12,875 which will allow us to give away even more trees during the Fall giveaway. We have until Sat. Nov. 10th to raise the money, so please consider supporting us by donating here.
