It’s tree giveaway time again! This fall, we are excited to be partnering with Riverfront North, the Arbor Day Foundation, and Bank of America to bring trees to Frankford!
We’ll host our tree giveaway on Saturday, October 16 from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm at Womrath Park, located at the intersection of Frankford Avenue and Womrath Street.
When you arrive on pickup day, we’ll give your tree, a bag of mulch, and information about how to care for your tree.
This is a PICKUP EVENT ONLY so please bring a vehicle large enough to transport the tree. The trees are not full-size and will be between 4 to 6 feet tall.
Here are the trees that are available:
Sourwood: A medium-sized native tree with white flowers that bloom in the summer. They can grow 20-50 feet tall which makes them an excellent shade tree.
