The Upper Providence Township Environmental Commission received a grant from Keystone 10 Million Trees Partnership this spring and is working with residents and local partners to plant over 5,000 trees in and around Upper Providence Township! Reach out to get involved with planting, or to find out more about how you can get free tree and shrub seedlings for your home.
At our first tree giveaway in early April, Upper Providence residents took home nearly 600 bare root seedlings to plant at their homes - stay tuned for our second tree seedling giveaway coming up soon.
Working with our community neighbors, we've planted 2,000 trees so far in April. Thank you to our residents, Ridley Creek State Park, the Scouts, Penn State Master Watershed Stewards, the Rose Valley EAC, and Keep Media Green. If you are part of a local organization interested in planting trees, please send a message to the Environmental Commission at www.upperprovidence.org.
