Tree Northeast (formerly Northeast Tree Tenders) is an organization dedicated to restoring tree cover to the neighborhoods of Northeast Philadelphia. We are currently accepting applications for street and yard trees to be planted in the Spring 2013 cycle.
By filling out this form, you agree to the following:
-An arborist from Philadelphia Parks & Recreation will inspect your location and determine whether it is an appropriate site for a tree(s) to be planted.
-Philadelphia Parks and Recreation and Tree Northeast will determine an appropriate tree species for your location.
-You will water the tree (15-20 gallons per week) from March through December for two years.
-You will protect your tree from damage by cars, lawn mowers, etc.
-You will notify Tree Northeast if the tree appears to be sick or damaged.
-If the site requires it, you give permission for a tree pit to be cut in your sidewalk or pavement. (If you cancel the tree installation after submitting the request form and the pavement has been cut, you will be responsible for replacing the pavement at your expense.)
