Spring Yard Tree Program Success

Thank you to everyone who came out to get their trees at our Spring 2013 TreePhilly Yard Tree Program events, and a special thanks to all of our wonderful volunteers!  We had a record pick up rate and many more walk-in participants than in years past, so most of our trees are now in good homes.  In addition, our Arbor Day volunteer tree planting event last Friday was a huge success (pics below).  Keep checking the website for information about tree planting and care, there are many more ways to get involved with Philadelphia’s urban forest!
