About Philly Tree People

Philly Tree People (PTP) is a volunteer operated neighborhood-based non-profit organization dedicated to organizing tree plantings and maintaining the health of the urban forest in 19125 and 19134. PTP was formed in Spring 2007 by Jacelyn Blank, Nykia Perez Kibler, and Dina Richman. We are a group of community volunteers that think we need more trees in the neighborhood and who have taken the free Tree Tenders Training through the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS). Philly Tree People is dedicated to helping people get trees, and maintaining those trees. We are a small volunteer organization run by three neighborhood gals.

Please help us maintain our commitment to excellence. We strongly urge you to make a donation of $30 per tree request to help offset costs associated with planning large tree plantings and the subsequent maintenance of trees. Your donation will keep our group moving forward and allow us to continue planting trees in your neighborhood. We can’t do it without you. We can’t do it without your donation. Your donation is tax-deductible as we are a federally approved 501c3 non-profit organization. Thanks!
