Tree Pennsylvania, a PA Urban & Community Forestry Council, is offering the Bare Root Tree Program that assists communities in PA to help build up the tree canopy standard and recommit to urban and community forests with bare root trees.

In collaboration with Penn State Extension, LEAF, the PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Our West Bayfront is pleased to offer free street trees to interested residents within the Our West Bayfront service footprint. Through the program, the resident will be able to choose from 3 variations of crab apple trees and will work with the organization above to ensure that the tree is beneficial to the ecosystem, fits within state and local ordinances in regards to location, and set up long-term care and maintenance plans.
