If you didn’t get a chance register for a tree this spring, make sure you do next year!
Penn’s Green Campus Partnership program is in its second year of a Creating Canopy, a tree giveaway for Penn faculty and staff.
The University partnered with the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society and Philadelphia Parks and Recreation on the free tree giveaway. They provide you with everything you need to know to plant and take care of your tree.
I chose an Eastern Redbud which can grow up to 30 feet high. I loaded the tree in my car and brought it to its new home in Delco.
And here it is, all safely planted in my yard and growing taller every day.
