It was extremely disappointing to see people climbing our Christmas tree in Marconi Plaza on Eagles parade day. It was completely irresponsible to climb a tree that cannot support the weight of people on its branches and, parents, you should be ashamed of yourself for encouraging your children to do this. We had a wonderful Christmas celebration in December with this tree and we hope that the neighborhood appreciates our efforts to promote a warm community spirit.

Hello Park Friends!

We wanted to share the exciting news that the registration for Tree Philly's Fall Yard Tree Giveaways is now open! This fall there are four chances for you to get a tree to plant in your yard. You can choose from 13 different trees, and at each event you will learn how to plant and care for your new tree. FYI - yard trees must be planted in the ground in the city of Philadelphia on private property, not in a pot, or in the sidewalk.

Please see the attache...d flier, check it out and feel free to spread the word to your networks! The link to register, and the list of community grantees can be found here - http://treephilly.org/registration-open-fall-2017-yard-tre…/
