Northern Liberties: Get a Free Street Tree at Your Home or Business

Get a Free Street Tree at Your Home or Business – Apply by April 2

Last year we planted 100 new street trees in NL – now you can apply for one in front of your home or business this Fall!

Street trees clean our air, reduce energy costs, increase home values (by 14% according to a 2004 Wharton study), and beautify the neighborhood.

There is no charge, but you must submit an application by Friday, April 2 to be included in the Fall 2010 planting.

Download the application from For help or for more info, email Erika Goldberg,

Also, you can learn how to plant and care for your tree by taking a free Tree Tenders class with the PA Horticultural Society this fall. Pre-register now by clicking here.
