In 1976, Philadelphia celebrated it’s bicentennial and to honor that, the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS) started the “10,000 Trees” project. It was a major tree-planting effort to plant 10,000 trees among 34 Philadelphia area parks between 1973 and 1977. On April 29th, 1977 (Arbor Day), they accomplished their goal and planted the 10,000th tree.
