Registration for the Yard Tree Program is open until October 31st.
On September 18th TreePhilly community partners, volunteers, and tree recipients celebrated the planting of the 100,000th tree since the beginning of Mayor Michael Nutter’s administration in 2008! 25 community groups were honored for their partnership in the TreePhilly Yard Tree Program and other programs with a framed certificate, signed and presented by Mayor Michael Nutter. We also celebrated Wells Fargo’s continued commitment to the Yard Tree Program with a check presentation (which will mean lots more yard trees in 2014!). And none of it would have been possible without the amazing Fairmount Park Conservancy. Check out the full set of photos here.
TreePhilly community partners raise their fists in the air, “Rocky style” to celebrate the planting of 100,000 trees, 25% of which were planted by volunteers!
Al, Kim, and Theo receive an award from Mayor Nutter for their tree-planting work as part of the Lower Moyamensing Civic Association.
