In celebration of Arbor Day, Tree Philly, a greening initiative led by Philadelphia Parks & Recreation along with Fairmount Park Conservancy, will be giving away free trees to Philadelphia residents at a handful of bars throughout the city today. They are calling it — wait for it — Arbrew Day.
The free trees will be available at five bars throughout the city, including Frankford Hall, City Tap House, The Kite & Key, Grey Lodge and Bourbon Blue. There will be at least 10 trees up for grabs at each location, starting at 4:30 p.m. and ending 8 p.m. And if you would love a free tree but have no freakin’ idea how to care for one, don’t worry, they’ll be covering that, too: The TreePhilly Mobile Tree Truck will by stopping by each bar to give new tree owners the lowdown on tree care. The trees will be handed out on a first come, first-come, first-served basis, so make sure to get to your bar of choice early on. And come prepared with a way of transporting your tree home: TreePhilly’s giveaway trees are usually between four and six feet tall, in two to five gallon containers. Happy planting, folks!
