Join the Beautification Committee to spread the word to your neighbors about getting FREE street trees! We'll be knocking on doors, telling neighbors about this amazing opportunity, and handing out applications.
10:00am: Meet (location TBD) to go over tree applications and our canvassing plan.
12:00pm: Join us for a free lunch (location TBD)!
If you can't make it to the tree canvassing, here are the important dates, links, and info:

We are recommending neighbors to send street tree application requests to Philly Tree People, which is the tree tender group for 19125/34 (basically, they help us plant trees!). They have two plantings each year -- one in the spring around April and one in the fall around November. Applications are also due twice a year around the tree planting dates. Applications submitted in the spring will be planted in the fall, and so forth. Although the city (Tree Philly) also offer applications for free tree planting, we have found that Philly Tree People plants on a much more consistent basis, whereas the city program can be less predictable due to budget fluctuations.
