The Philadelphia Parks and Recreation Department and the Fairmount Park Conservancy Monday announced the TreePhilly Program will again be offering free trees to plant starting April 1.
Interested people should pre-register for one of the four pick-up events being held around Philly in April (walk-ins will be accepted, but while supplies last). In addition, each resident will receive a free bag of mulch.
There, you’ll be able to pick from a dozen types of yard trees, including black gum, red oak, gray birch, ironwood, red buckeye, Robin crabapple, staghorn sumac, witchhazel, sourwood, apple, apricot, and sweet cherry.
These are the four dates and locations for tree pick-ups:
-- April 1: from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Congreso de Latinos Unidos courtyard (216 W. Somerset St.);
-- April 2: from 12 to 2 p.m. at South Philadelphia High School (2101 South Broad St.);
-- April 8: from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Roxborough TD Bank Store (5501 Ridge Ave.); and
-- April 9: from 12 to 2 p.m. at Frankford Avenue TD Bank Store (6635 Frankford Ave.).For more information and to pre-register, visit the TreePhilly Program website.
