WANT to spruce up your yard this spring? The city can hook you up with one or two free trees - but you have to act fast.
The deadline to register for TreePhilly's spring campaign is March 31. Go to treephilly.org.
Residents can choose from nine times and locations to pick up trees in April. They also can get information on the 10 species that the city is offering.
There's the pawpaw, which grows to about 20-feet tall and sprouts "fruits that taste like banana custard"; the sweetbay magnolia, with "large fragrant white flowers" in the spring and "bright red berries" in the fall; the enormous tulip tree, which can grow to 90 feet; and many others, according to the city's website.
