This spring we asked tree planters to capture the charm of their new leafy (or soon-to-be leafy) friends. They could enter their photos into the Plant One Million photo contest for a chance to win a PHS membership.
Tom Hawthorn of the Newbold-West Passyunk Tree Tenders group takes home the prize. His photo demonstrates excellent planting and site cleanup practices. The tree is one of four trees planted in April outside The Taproom on 19th and Ritner Streets in South Philadelphia through the PHS Tree Tenders andTreeVitalize programs.
