Our commitment to Philadelphia is strong and unwavering. After all, our employees don’t just work in this City, it’s where we call home.

That’s why, PGW has partnered with the Phillies and Pennsylvania Horticultural Society in support of their Home Runs for Trees initiative for the second year in a row. For every home run hit by a Phillies player, a tree is planted in parks, urban neighborhoods and watershed areas.

PGW joined the Phillies, PHS, and senior residents of Congreso in North Philadelphia in April to plant the first tree of the season. The Phanatic brought his salsa moves; we brought our renewed commitment to the health and sustainability of Philadelphia.

Now in its sixth year, Home Runs for Trees is part of Plant One Million, the nation’s largest multi-state tree campaign working to restore the area of land shaded by trees in the Greater Philadelphia region by 30%.

To date, 537,000 trees have been planted, bringing us closer to one million trees.
