Dead Trees Wanted

Take advantage of new tree subsidy program. Help keep our streets looking great and protect our environment.

Our streets are lined with many beautiful, mature trees. Unfortunately, some of those trees have reached the end of their life.

It is important to know that while the City of Philadelphia has jurisdiction over street trees, the trees belong to the property owner, who are responsible for keeping them healthy.  That said, the Deparment of  Parks and Recreation Tree Management Office must give permission before street trees can be pruned or have any work done on them. Individuals other than arborists or Tree Tenders cannot do this work.  Tree tenders are neighbors who have tree-care training with the Pennsylvania Horticulural Society.

Just a reminder that the trash collection is delayed 1 day due to the Memorial Day Holiday.
