Thanks to the extensive response we’ve received from neighbors, businesses, civic groups, and nonprofits across the city, we exceeded our target number and are giving away over 2200 free yard trees this week! If you were one of these applicants, by now you should have received a phone call or email from one of our TreePhilly staff letting you know of your area’s tree pick up location. Locations will be on various days throughout the city all during TreePhilly week, which runs from April 21st to 29th. TreePhilly week is supported by Wells Fargo and the Fairmount Park Conservancy, without whom your free tree would not have been possible!
If you missed the spring deadline, there’s no need to despair, as we’ll be doing another giveaway in the fall as well. The deadline for receiving a tree this coming October is on September 30, 2012, so don’t waste any time: get your application for the fall in today. You can find the form in the paragraph below, so help us give away another 2000 free trees!
