The City of Philadelphia celebrated Arbor Day Friday as it does every year, by planting trees and shrubs.
Budding branches allow you to enjoy the promise of spring, indoors or out.
When you take leaves away from under a tree and dump mulch on the ground in their place, the mulch can’t begin to replace all the nutrients the leaves had naturally.
With only a few more weeks until the official start of spring, planting initiative TreePhilly has begun its annual tree giveaway.
Lots of trees fell during the hurricane, so first that means clean up, and then, replanting. If you’d like to pitch in, consider becoming a ‘Tree Tender’ for the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society.

Some of the most severe storms from Thursday afternoon were “hop-scotching” throughout the area west of Philadelphia.
With a new park ready to sprout in the shadow of the Ben Franklin Bridge, trees are being planted in preparation for next month’s opening of the new Race Street Pier, on the Delaware riverfront.
