That’s right! PHS and the Phillies are working together to plant trees as part of Plant One Million!
First off: Phillies fans can sign up for a complimentary tree! If you are among the first 250 respondents, a PHS arborist will be in touch to help you pick out the right tree species for your site.
Tree distribution will take place on Sunday, April 22 from 1 – 3 pm at Citizens Bank Park. You must be registered in advance in order to receive a free tree.
A second way to get in on the Phillies fun is to enter the Plant One Million Spring Sweepstakes. Individuals who plant a tree and submit a photo and caption on PlantOneMillion.org could win a Phillies Prize Pak. Click here for details.
The ultimate goal of all this tree talk is to encourage people to plant trees this spring. Collectively we can increase the tree canopy cover—the area of land shaded by trees—in the tri-state area to 30%, the greatest coverage in more than a century.
