Gabriella Paez

Hunting Park is one of the hottest neighborhoods in Philadelphia – up to 22 degrees hotter than other neighborhoods – due to historically discriminatory housing practices, excessive asphalt, and low tree canopy coverage. Gabriella has given away nearly 700 trees in Hunting Park through the Community Yard Tree Giveaway Grant program, and created the city’s first bilingual Tree Tender program for Spanish-speaking residents. If you are a property owner in Philadelphia, you can fill out this online form to request a street or yard tree.
