PHS is working with Nicetown CDC, Tioga United, and other community organizations to build and maintain a healthy tree canopy for all residents. Our goal is to increase Nicetown and Tioga's tree coverage from 10% to a healthy coverage of 30%. Planting trees is a powerful way to enhance the health and well-being of neighborhoods. Trees keep our neighborhoods cooler (by up to 22 degrees!), improve the physical and mental health of residents, and have even been shown to reduce violent crime.
