TreePhilly is a joint program of Philadelphia Parks and Recreation and the Fairmount Park Conservancy that empowers Philadelphia community members to enrich life in their neighborhoods through the planting, care of and connection with trees. We work to reverse the city’s unequal and declining tree canopy by providing free, accessible yard trees and nurturing relationships between neighbors, institutions and the land we live on. In all our work, we strive to follow the principles and practices of environmental justice.
