Phillies, PGW and PHS Team Up for Game-Changing Environmental Program
‘Home Runs for Trees’ initiative aims to help restore the region’s tree coverage
There’s a dire need for trees – and the Phillies, PGW, and Pennsylvania Horticultural Society are teaming up to do something about it.
Now in its fifth season, “Home Run for Trees” is part of Plant One Million, an ambitious multi-state tree-planting campaign encompassing 13 counties in southeastern Pennsylvania and parts of New Jersey and Delaware.
In addition to educating fans about the need for trees and canopy restoration, the program will increase the trees planted in the Greater Philadelphia area. For each home run hit by a Phillies player, PHS and its partners will plant a tree in locations such as local parks, urban settings and watershed areas.
The Phillies and PGW’s participation in the project aligns with the team’s award-winning “Red Goes Green” program, which emphasizes the team’s leading role in environmental responsibility.
The tree plantings are being made possible through the generous sponsorship of PGW.
