Registration for Fall 2015 Yard Tree Giveaways is now open!

Registration for our fall yard tree giveaways is now open!

This fall, Philadelphia property owners can register for up to two free trees to plant in a yard or lawn on private property. We have several species available this fall, ranging from tall shade trees to beautiful and tasty fruit trees! Find more information on the species offered this season here.

 

Participants can pre-register for one of the events listed below to pick up their preferred species.

At each event, participants will learn how to plant and care for their new tree and receive educational materials as well as a free bag of mulch. Pre-registration is required for all events, unless otherwise noted.
