EFNC Supports Yard Tree Giveaway in Southwest Philadelpia

Eastwick Friends & Neighbors Coalition is a proud partner of the Yard Tree Giveaway in Southwest Philadelphia!  Now through October 17, while supplies last, Philadelphia residents can register for up to TWO FREE trees to plant in a yard or lawn on private property. Several species are available, including Sugar Maple, Willow Oak, Hackberry, American Hornbeam, and Corneliancherry fruit tree.

Trees are a vital part of every community in Southwest Philadelphia and anywhere! Trees shade homes, provide habitat for wildlife, and beautify our neighborhoods. Trees also promote human health, increase air quality, soak up stormwater, save energy, reduce costs to taxpayers—and sometimes simply provide a much-needed place of solace in a bustling urban center!

When you pick-up your trees, you’ll also receive a free bag of mulch, educational materials and information on how to plant and care for tree.

Pick up your tree on Saturday, October 17th from 10:00am – 12:00pm at Longstreth Elementary School, 5700 Willows Avenue in West Philadelphia.  *PLEASE NOTE: Any leftover trees at 12:00pm will be made available for walk-in residents, so be sure to pick up your trees by noon!*
