Creating Canopy Tree Giveaway Open for 2021

Penn’s tree giveaway event, designed to encourage the ‘greening’ of our communities in greater Philadelphia, is back for 2021! All Penn and UPHS employees who are residents of the City of Philadelphia are invited to register to receive a free street tree. Registration opens at 10AM on Tuesday, April 13, and trees can be picked up on Thursday, May 6, 1-4 PM.

Event information, and the registration link, may be found on our website:

Please note that we’ve had to make some changes to the program this year:
• Only 100 trees will be available. First come, first served via the online registration.
• Registrations will be accepted only via the online system.
• Trees must be planted in the City of Philadelphia. The address you submit will be verified by our partners at Tree Philly.
• You are responsible for transporting your own tree from our Penn Park event location.
• We’re unable to accept walk up registrations and we won’t be able to distribute unclaimed trees at the end of the day, as we have in the past.

Please send your questions to No tree registrations will be accepted by email.
