Spring may be a little far off, but it’s not too early to be thinking about tree planting.
If you’re interested in requesting trees for your street, now’s your chance. The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s Plant One Million program’s deadline is approaching for street tree planting in the spring.
The purpose of this program is to replace the tree canopy in Philadelphia that has been lost due to the rapid development in the city. The addition of more trees will help improve air quality, absorb storm water runoff and help increase property values in the community.
In addition to requesting a tree for a specific location, there is always a need for more tree tenders. The East Passyunk Crossing Civic Association is hosting a final pruning training session for this year on November 7.
