Penn is partnering with the City of Philadelphia to help Greenworks Philadelphia reach its goal of planting 300,000 new trees by 2015. Penn is now sponsoring a structured tree giveaway in partnership with Philadelphia Parks and Recreation and UC Green.  Penn faculty and staff may receive a free tree if they live within Philadelphia city limits and can plant it in their yard. A giveaway event will be held on March 31 with President Amy Gutmann and Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter. To pre-register for a tree, sign up by March 17: www.upenn.edu/sustainability/treegiveaway.html
