Fall 2019 Yard Tree Giveaways

Registration for Yard Tree Giveaway Events is open for Fall 2019!
This fall, TreePhilly is partnering with over 23 community organizations around the city to help better serve neighborhoods most in need of trees. Explore our list of community partners below and reach out to reserve a tree at the giveaway event nearest you. Don’t see your neighborhood on the list this season? Partner up with an organization in your community and contact TreePhilly to get notified when applications for the Spring 2020 giveaway season are released.

Review the tree species offered this season, then contact the community group in your area to find out what’s available locally. Please note: you must come to the event in the first hour and a half to receive the tree you have registered for. In the last half hour of each giveaway, all remaining trees are made available to walk-ins.

If you have limited mobility and cannot pick up and plant your tree, we are offering a free delivery and planting service. Click here to find out more OR call our office or email our office and leave your name and address and we will mail you a paper application.
