Spring Tree Planting
For the past few years a dedicated band of your fellow neighbors has been helping to make Passyunk Square a greener, cleaner place. Now we need your help to continue that good work at our semi-annual Tree Planting on Saturday. We have 33 trees to get in the ground, and can use as much help as we can get to put them in the ground the right way. We’re also looking for people to maintain some of the other 600+ trees we’ve planted over the past 7 years.

We’ll be meeting at Capitolo Playground at 9th and Federal at 8:45am to get everything started!
After a quick orientation on the proper way to plant the tree we will split up into groups to head out and plant. This year, volunteers from City Year – middle and high schoolers – will stick around Capitolo and help us take care of the trees we’ve planted in the past. We’ll also be mulching every tree we plant, as well as some other trees that need it, so there will certainly be plenty for everyone to do.

The planting part of the day should last until about 12 or 1 at the latest and afterwards we’ll head over to Devil’s Den to plant ourselves on several of their barstools for drink and food specials as a reward for all the hard work.

We could also use a few people to help us unload and sort the trees on Friday evening, at 5pm, so if you can’t make the planting but are free Friday at that time, contact Andrew Emma, our Beautification Chair at beautification@passyunk.org.

More information, including how you can sign up to get a tree in front of your house during our Fall planting (deadline to apply: May 1) is available at passyunk.org.
