Philadelphia (October 25, 2006)- UC Green mobilized 150 volunteers to plant 40 new street trees on October 21 in the West Powelton neighborhood from North 40th to 42nd Streets. This event was one of more than 100 regreening efforts throughout the country during October, which has been declared NeighborWoods Month by the national nonprofit, the Alliance for Community Trees (ACT). UC Green is a member of ACT’s NeighborWoods Network.


With help from the West Powelton neighbors, Drexel University and other local students, and Tree Tenders, UC Green planted these 40 new street trees to help restore tree canopy, build community, and offer a volunteer event to improve the health and vitality of the neighborhood.
