Community Yard Tree Giveaways

TreePhilly is branching out!

TreePhilly’s Community Yard Tree Giveaway program empowers community groups to help restore Philly’s urban forest – starting in their own back yards! Through this program, we provide small grants to local community groups so they can host yard tree giveaways in their neighborhoods. We do what we do best – provide the trees, education, and event support – and community groups do what they do best – connect with constituents to improve their neighborhoods!

**Applications to host a Spring 2018 Community Yard Tree Giveaway will open in January 2018.**
