More Trees Please

If Philadelphia increased its tree canopy to cover 30% of its streets, it could prevent hundreds of premature deaths each year, according to a groundbreaking scientific study.

Join PHS in planting 2,000 trees in Philadelphia and southeastern Pennsylvania by supporting our 2020 More Trees Please campaign.

Philadelphia currently only has 20% tree coverage, with some neighborhoods having less than 5% coverage. That means hotter temperatures, more run-off pouring pollutants into our waterways, and more lives lost.

By supporting the 2020 More Trees Please campaign and helping us reach our $30,000 fundraising goal between now and October 14, your generosity will directly support our work to plant and care for 2,000 trees ensuring a healthier, greener future for our region.

NEW FOR 2020 – Fundraise for More Trees Please!

You can help us reach our goal of planting 2,000 trees by creating your own More Trees Please fundraising page. It’s an easy and impactful way to share your love of trees with your friends, family, and community.
