Help Tree Tenders plant 400 trees in Philly neighborhoods this fall!

If you like trees and if you believe that the addition of 250 trees to the streets of Queen Village over the last seven years—planted by our very own Tree Tenders group–has made our neighborhood a better place to live, please consider donating to the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s campaign (called “More Trees Please”)  to raise $11,000 between now and October 2nd  to allow PHS to provide trees to Queen Village Tree Tenders and similar groups throughout the city this fall.  Due to reductions in the grants that PHS has relied on in the past to completely cover the cost of the trees that have gone to groups like Queen Village Tree Tenders, PHS is seeking to raise funds from the public to help pay for the cost of the trees and the cost of cutting the pits where the trees are planted.

You can donate by going to www.phsonline.org/phillytreetenders or you can send a check payable to the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society with “More Trees Please: Friend of Queen Village” on the subject line.  Checks should be mailed to Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, Development Department, 100 North 20th Street, 5th floor, Philadelphia, PA 19103.
