Thanks to TreePhilly’s Community Yard Tree Giveaway Grants, Esperanza is hosting yet another Community Yard Tree Giveaway this May.
Through these grants, TreePhilly hopes to “empower community groups to help restore Philly’s urban forest.” TreePhilly provides community groups with trees and funds to host yard tree giveaways in their neighborhoods. Last year, Esperanza was able to give away over 90 trees to Hunting Park community members, making ours the most successful tree giveaway in the city.
Register to pick up a free yard tree on Tuesday, May 5th or Thursday, May 7th from Esperanza (4261 N. 5th st. Philadelphia, PA 19140). Trees must be planted in Philadelphia, on a yard in your private property (not sidewalks or containers), and within 15 days of receiving the tree. Renters must have landlord’s consent in order to receive a tree. Only one tree per person will be given unless there is a surplus of trees after May 7th.
