Registration for Fall 2017 Yard Tree Giveaways SOLD OUT

Registration for our fall yard tree giveaways is now open SOLD OUT!

Fall is here (really, it is!) and it’s time to plant a tree! This fall there are four chances for you to get a tree to plant in your yard. Choose from 13 different trees, including large shade trees, small flowering trees and fruit trees. Learn more about the trees that we’re giving away this season here. Pre-registration is encouraged, but walk-ins will be accepted during each event, while supplies last. At each event you will learn how to plant and care for your new tree, and you will take it home with free mulch. Yard trees must be planted in the ground in the city of Philadelphia on private property, not in a pot, or in the sidewalk.

Pre-registration for the Spring 2016 events is sold out, but participants can come to the end of one of the events listed below to choose from unclaimed trees. Species are based on availability.

Find a list of Fall 2017 trees here.

    I did not register since the tree I wanted is out of stock.

      We release more trees every Monday as we delete duplicate registrants, so check back on Monday!

    I registered and selected a medium tree, but I really need a smaller tree. Is it possible to get a service tree

      Hi Julieta! We update the tree inventory every Monday with trees from duplicate registrations, so every tree is now in stock! Serviceberry and Sweetbay Magnolia are both available.

        If my first pick tree was unavailable. Can I select it when picking up? I am interested in the Magnolia’s. I just registered a few moments ago and it was not available

          Tamika,

          We are currently “sold out” of the Sweetbay Magnolia, but at the end of each event we always give away the trees that were not picked up. If you are available to wait until the end, you are welcome to switch to the magnolia at that time (if available).

          Thanks,
          Erica

    It’sjulieta again . A sweet bay would also be good as well to accent my garden or side yard
