PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - Plant a million trees. Well, not all by yourself, you have some help.
As part of an effort to ‘Plant One Million’ trees across 13 counties in our tri-state area, The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society along with Philadelphia Parks & Recreation, Friends of FDR Park, and dozens of volunteers will plant more than 100 trees in South Philadelphia this Saturday, Nov. 5, starting at 9:30 a.m. at FDR Park at 1900 Pattison Avenue across from the American Swedish Historical Museum. And that’s just one location – the same day, plantings will take place near the Brandywine Creek in Chester County; in Camden, N.J.; and Newark, Del., along with plantings and tree-care activities at 60 other parks.
You can show up, cheer them on, volunteer to help, or even plant a tree or three yourself – in your yard, for a neighbor or in a park near you.
Fall is the very best time to plant trees. Learn more about the Plant One Million project at PennsylvaniaHorticulturalSociety.org/plant-one-million.
