Tree Plantings

We thank our many volunteers sincerely for all of your hard work. You make greening our communities possible.

Philly Tree People hosts two tree plantings annually, one in the Spring and one in the Fall. We accept applications for street trees from property owners in 19125 and 19134 on an ongoing basis but each planting season has a unique deadline several months prior to the actual planting. All trees we plant on a given date have been selected for specific locations and were chosen by an arborist (who also inspected the site) as a suitable species for that specific address after being applied for 7-12 months prior to planting day. Applications for Spring 2018 are due in Fall 2017.
