Beautifying the neighborhood by bringing tree coverage to the streets of East Kensington, Kensington and Fishtown

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 specificĀ locations and were chosen by an arborist (who also inspected the site) as a suitable species for that specific address after beingĀ applied for 7-12 months prior to planting day. Applications are being accepted for plantings in 2021 and beyond.
