Help Philly Tree Tenders plant 950 trees throughout the city in fall 2018 and spring 2019!
Tree Tenders groups from around Philadelphia are coming together to raise funds for street tree plantings to green, cool and beautify neighborhoods across the city.
Join the effort to raise $40,000 to help us achieve our goal to plant and care for 950 trees in Philadelphia in fall 2018 and spring 2019.
Every gift counts – no matter how big or small. Any funds raised over the goal will be used for future tree plantings and care throughout the city.
Thank you in advance for your gift and getting us closer to our goal!
