South Philly Tree Pruning




Please join us as we prune some trees with our civic assocation neighbors.

Where: Starting at 20th and Jackson St

When: This Saturday, July 12th, 10:00 AM


Newbold Neighbors Association has been awarded a grant to prune trees in and around our neighborhood.  This grant, in association with Newbold CDC and West Passyunk Neighbors Association, allows for us to prune under the guidance of a certified arborist.  We have 4 dates throughout the summer and will be hitting different parts of South Philly. This month, we will be starting at 20th and Jackson and will prune a few neaby blocks.  Let us know if you'll be coming - all you need to bring is yourself.
