81 Trees - Final Count!

We had an amazing response to trees and many more people still want them. East Kensington, Fishtown and Kensington are going to start looking a lot greener soon.

Thanks to everyone who was able to complete tree requests! You will here from us soon.

I'll be updating the map soon as well.

Update on March 2008 Planting

Hello Folks,

Awesome news - We are at 63 trees and still counting (just waiting for a few more applications to arrive tonight).

If you haven't already contacted me - IT IS TOO LATE for the March 2008 planting - you will have to wait until next time. Not sure when next time will be just yet but we'll have to keep you informed. You can email us at: phillytreepeople@gmail.com BUT please send your message with the Subject Line: "Keep Me Informed" and we will do just that. We'll alert you about upcoming tree plantings and related activities happening in our neighborhoods ONLY and volunteer opportunities associated with those events in our neighborhoods as well.

The blog will continue to be updated with city wide tree related information and mostly information about trees being planted in our neighborhoods.

Thank you to everyone who filled out forms and gave or promised money - and to those who gave extra - we need it.
