October 2014 - Treephilly

Share your Tree Story, win $300 in gardening supplies!

October 28, 2014 | trees-of-philly-story-contest-blogWe are excited to announce the first-ever Trees of Philly Story Contest! We want to hear about the fascinating trees of Philadelphia and what they mean to you. Maybe your story is about the free yard tree you just picked up at one of our fall giveaways, maybe it’s about a tree you love to read under in your neighborhood park, or maybe it’s even about a tree you remember climbing as a child. Whatever your tree story is, we want to hear it! Submit your Trees of Philly story along with a photo by November 10 for a chance to win $300 worth of gardening supplies! We’ll also select a few honorable mentions to receive a Philly- and tree-themed prize pack. Some of our favorite stories will appear on our new website, which will be launched in December 2014.

Please visit treesofphillystories.com to enter!
