REGISTER: Get Free Trees This Saturday!
In an effort to help beautify the neighborhood, East Kensington Neighbors Association and the New Kensington Community Development Corporation have partnered with TreePhilly to give out two free trees to residents who register for them. You can pick up your trees this Saturday at the NKCDC garden center (1801 Frankford Ave) from 10AM to 2PM.
Residents will be given their trees as long as they make the following pledge:
I will plant my tree in the City of Philadelphia on property I own, or property on which I have permission to plant.
I will plant my tree in the ground (NOT in a container or in the sidewalk).
I will plant my tree within 15 days of pick-up.
I will water my tree (20 gallons a week) from March through December.
I agree to allow TreePhilly to contact me for follow-up information about my tree.
So if you like trees—and who doesn’t—make sure to stop by and do your part to help beatify your neighborhood.
