Trees for residential planting are still available!

Although the Nov 2nd tree giveaway co-sponsored by the Highland Park Community Council sold out – that’s 250 new trees for our neighborhood! – you can sign up to get a new tree this weekend right around the corner at the Humane Animal Rescue on Hamilton Ave.  Tree Pittsburgh will be giving away trees at this location this Saturday, Oct 26th.  Trees save us money by cooling our homes in the summer while letting sunlight through to warm us in winter, help prevent flooding and fight climate change, increase our property values, and provide habitat for critters and beauty for all.  You’ll get to choose from an assortment of species, which may include river birch, sycamore, kousa dogwood, hornbeam, hop hornbeam, and redbud.   Sign-up now while trees are still available!
