The Tree Pit Message Cone is an Old City Green initiative in partnership with PHS Tree Tenders. The idea is to raise awareness of the negative impacts of dog urine on trees.
Old City Green proposed the Cone format and message, researched materials, orchestrated production, and funded the project. PHS staff developed and produced the Cone graphics.
Currently, the ten prototype Cones deployed around Old City are being monitored to determine the effectiveness of the message and durability of the materials used. Soon, Old City Green hopes to do a production run, after any appropriate amendments to the design.
If you would like to be notified when the Cone is available for purchase, send your contact information to: OldCityGreenPhiladelphia@gmail.com.

Healthy tree pits are key to a healthy tree!
Protect your trees during establishment period. Every cone in use helps to educate others. Your tree will thank you!
