Help us branch out!

We’re excited to announce a new initiative that will help us branch out and reach even more neighborhoods across the city! community-giveaway-grant-webpic We’re launching the Community Yard Tree Giveaway Program, an opportunity for community groups and local businesses across the city to help restore Phillly’s urban forest and beautify their neighborhoods – starting in their own back yards! TreePhilly will provide five grants worth $500 and 50 trees – a $2000 value – for community groups to hold yard tree giveaways in their neighborhoods this fall. Recipients will also receive event planning and promotion guidance, free mulch, and educational materials.
