Fall 2013 Survey Results

THANK YOU so much for filling out our survey for the Fall 2013 Yard Tree Program!  389 of you filled out the survey (!!) – this information is crucial for helping us improve our programming in the future. Some of you had great advice for how to improve:
  • “Include a pick up location in Roxborough/Chestnut Hill”  (look out for an event this spring at Gorgas Park!)
  • “Would like to have had a reservation for the tree that I wanted.”
  • “Gather volunteers to help elderly homeowners with tree planting.”
We take your advice to heart and will use this advice as best we can!   We also heard a lot of wonderful praise for our program:
  • “Every time I have participated in this program, it has been positively a delight thanks to the friendly and knowledgeable staff and volunteers.”
  • “Thank you for all that you are doing to help green Philadelphia!”
  • “This year’s give away was GREAT! The event as very organized and the staff were knowledgeable and helpful. Each year gets better! Wish we had a bigger yard for more trees!”
  • “We enjoyed the program and planted the trees with our grand-daughter – she spoke with your helpers and they told her that she can make muffins with the berries from the serviceberry tree,  she is patiently waiting . . .”
Also, congratulations to the winners of the raffle!  Deborah J. from 19131 and Claudia S. from 19128 will receive a fantastic tote bag from the Fairmount Park Conservancy in return for filling out the survey.  F13 South Philly 11.10 Happy new tree owners at the tree giveaway event at Columbus Square Playground this past Fall.
