Northern Liberties Residents: Get a Free Tree!

Get a Tree in Front of Your Property - for Free!
Help Make Northern Liberties Greener:  Apply by July 20

By the end of this year we'll have planted 100 new street trees around our community. You can apply now for a tree at your home or business, for the Spring 2010 planting.

Street trees clean our air, reduce home energy costs, increase home values (by 14% according to a 2004 Wharton study), and beautify the neighborhood.

Applications Due July 20
Contact Erika Goldberg,

Also, learn how to plant and care for your tree by taking a free Tree Tenders class with the PA Horticultural Society in October. Pre-register now by clicking here.
