Is your neighborhood one of the 7 to receive free trees this fall?

The community groups received a grant from TreePhilly to host a tree giveaway event

So far, it’s helped provide 15,177 free trees in Philadelphia.

Yesterday, TreePhilly announced the fall 2015 recipients of its Community Tree Giveaway Grants. Each of the winning community groups will host a free yard tree giveaway in their neighborhood this fall with support of Tree Philly.

Each selected group will be able offer either 50 or 100 trees to their communities, as well as free mulch, planting demonstrations, and educational materials. The schedule of events and the list of available trees will be announced in mid-September.
