    ARE THEY GIVEING AWAY FREE TREE’S FOR ZIP CODE 19144 AND WHEN?

    • treephilly

      Hi Christine,

      Thanks for reaching out. There are no giveaways in 19144 this year. I would recommend grabbing a tree from the Casa de Dios Nuevo Pacto giveaway.

      Casa de Dios Nuevo Pacto
      10am to 2pm
      726 W Ontario St, Philadelphia PA 19140
      To register, contact Gabriella Páez, Giveaway Coordinator at gabi780@gmail.com
      Registration for this giveaway is open citywide

    Hi. I was interested in the magnolia but I saw that it is “sold out.” Is there any chance one will become available? If someone does not claim theirs, would I be able to get it?

    • treephilly

      Hi Dan,

      I don’t believe every giveaway is sold out of Magnolias. Which neighborhood are you from so we can advise you which giveaway to contact to get registered for a magnolia.

      Best,
      TreePhilly

      • Daniel DiRenzo

        Hi. I’m in Fishtown. Please let me k ownif there is one close where I can register for one. Thanks!

        • treephilly

          Hi Daniel! You should register for the Frankford CDC giveaway on November 4.

  3. Linda

    Disappointed that there are no tree giveaway events in the Northwest section of the city.. can you explain why?

    • treephilly

      Hey Linda,

      Thanks for reaching out. There are no giveaways in the Northwest because no community groups applied to host neighborhood giveaways from that area of the city. We award grants to community-based organizations and coalitions based on strength of the group and plan as well as the need for trees in each neighborhood but they have to apply first!

      Best,
      TreePhilly

  4. Emily

    Any fruit trees in zip 19128 or close to us ?

    • treephilly

      Hello! The closest giveaway to 19128 is the first giveaway at Casa de Dios Nuevo Pacto, 726 W Ontario St, Philadelphia PA 19140, on the 29th.

  5. How many trees are you allowed to get ?

    • treephilly

      Great question! We’re leaving this up to the community partner. In general, if you’re looking for multiple trees the best bet would be to come at the end of the giveaways in case there are extras.

  6. Joyce Ferrero

    I’ve called the number for the Assoc. Polish giveaway numerous times and no one picks up. Is there another way to get in touch before they’re all given away?

    • treephilly

      Joyce, we have also listed an email address for APH that you can try!
