Is your yard missing something? Maybe a nice dogwood or redbud tree?
It's not too early to think about the spring planting season, and last week TreePhilly opened up registration for its yard tree giveaway program. Property owners or community groups may register between now and March 31 for a free yard tree through TreePhilly, which will be available for pick up at one of the nine tree giveaway events in April.
