Plant Trees with PHS Tree Tenders
PHS Tree Tenders across Philadelphia and Southeastern PA (Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery Counties) plant 800-1000 trees every April and November. It’s a lot of trees to get in the ground so we need your help. By participating, you are part of a larger effort to restore tree canopy in the region and to support Plant One Million in the second half of the campaign to plant and care for one million trees!

Never Planted a Tree Before? Not to Worry.
The trees are bare root (no soil attached), so they are light and easy to plant. You may even be lucky to find a golden ticket and win a prize!
