seedling giveaway, tree pittsburgh

Arbor Day in Pennsylvania is celebrated Friday, April 28. Tree Pittsburgh is celebrating by giving away 1,000 tree seedlings grown at our Heritage Nursery, thanks to the Pittsburgh Shade Tree Commission! 

We'll see you Friday, April 28 in Market Square. The giveaway begins at 11:45 and ends at 2 p.m. or when we're out of seedlings, whichever comes first.

Westin Convention Center Partnership

Tree Pittsburgh is excited to collaborate with the Westin Convention Center to launch a new initiative in support of our tree planting program. If a guest decides to forgo housekeeping services, they can choose to have a donation sent to Tree Pittsburgh on their behalf. The partnership is a great example of how corporations can positively impact the community by encouraging greener practices and supporting local environmental initiatives. Thanks to the Westin guests who make a greener choice and to the Westin for being such a great corporate citizen.
