Phils announce Home Runs For Trees program
PHILADELPHIA -- The Phillies, ARAMARK and Pennsylvania Horticultural Society announced "Phillies Home Runs for Trees" program on Monday at Citizens Bank Park, which aims to restore tree coverage in the area.

For each home run the team hits this season, the organization hopes to plant a tree. Entering Monday's game against the Cubs, that total stood at 14.

The initiative is part of PHS' Plant One Million program, a tree-planting campaign in 13 counties in southeastern Pennsylvania and parts of New Jersey and Delaware. For each home run hit by a Phillies player, PHS and its partners will plant a tree in locations like local parks, urban settings and watershed areas.
