Time to request street trees to be planted in the fall

Spring is around the corner, but it is now time to be thinking ahead to fall tree planting.

Tree tenders groups around the city are accepting applications for the planting of streets trees through the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s Treevitalize program.

The program helps replace trees that have been lost due to the city’s rapid development. Various community groups help with this through their tree tenders groups that plant and maintain the green development occurring in their neighborhoods.

The deadlines vary depending on which neighborhood group you’re submitting to. You can fill out the tree request form hereThis map lists out the boundaries and contact information for sending in those forms and finding out more about tree tenders in your neighborhood.

    Of trees along the school itself.
