The City of Philadelphia released the Philly Tree Plan in 2023. It is the city’s first-ever urban forest strategic plan. In support of citywide equity and sustainability goals, the plan:
- Set a 10-year strategy to grow, protect, and care for Philadelphia’s tree canopy.
- Established new ways of working with residents to combat climate change.
The plan also provides recommendations to the City and its partners to:
- Coordinate and strengthen their work on tree planting and maintenance.
- Find the role policy can play to support a more tree-friendly culture across the city.
The plan was guided by our vision, mission, and goals.
