Have you been walking around center city lately? You may have noticed some little comic book word bubbles hanging in the trees with silly phrases and #TreePhilly. I had no idea the trees in center city were so amorous like coy little leafy strumpets.
Anyway, TreePhilly is a brand new initiative by Philadelphia Parks & Rec who have teamed up with Fairmount Parks Conservancy and Wells Fargo to make Philly a bit more tree friendly. The kickoff event is tomorrow morning at 9:30 AM at Love Park. There, Mayor Nutter and Michael DiBerardinis, Deputy Mayor for Environmental & Community, will be joined by a “talking spokes-tree” (Please let it be Treebeard) to fill us in on the how we can keep Philly green.
Also, you’ll want to hunt down these adorable signs littered throughout the city and snap some photos and post them using #TreePhilly to help spread the word.
