Fall 2021 – Yard Tree Giveaways

It’s yard tree giveaway season! This Fall TreePhilly is hosting 14 contactless tree pick-up events with limited tree delivery program for Philadelphia residents in high-risk populations or those unable to pick up a tree in their car, and 2 delivery-only giveaways. We are partnering with groups and organizations in some of the neighborhoods that need trees the most. Many of the request forms are limited to recipients in particular areas of the city. The “City-Wide Event” is open to all residents of Philadelphia. Trees are available while supplies last and pre-registration is encouraged.

Trees are available for Philadelphia residents only and must be planted in the ground (not in a pot) on private property in the city of Philadelphia. If you are looking to have a tree planted on the street (in the spot between the sidewalk and street), click here to sign up for a free street tree!

Tree pick-up events and deliveries will be executed with strict adherence to social distancing guidelines in order to protect against the spread of COVID-19. Pre-registering to request a tree is strongly encouraged

How to Register for a Drive-through Pick-up Event
Find a city-wide or community-specific event below and follow the link or contact the community partner listed to register for your tree. Community-specific events are intended for residents of the areas around the event and may have restrictions on who can sign up.

You will be prompted to request the tree you’d like to receive as well as a “back-up choice”, a tree that would be acceptable if your first choice is not available. We will contact you the week before the event to confirm your request and provide additional details on how to pick up your tree.

How to Register for Delivery
Delivery is offered primarily for people who: 1) are at increased risk of contracting COVID-19, 2) do not have a vehicle to attend an event, or 3) are not available to pick up a tree during an event time.

Note: We will deliver your tree, mulch, and information about planting and caring for your tree, but you are responsible for planting your tree. If you need assistance planting your tree, please apply for a tree using our Limited Mobility Application.
