    Record warmth temps can cause problems for plants
    With these record warm days, you've probably noticed flowers like daffodils poking up out of the ground. The experts tell us this is pretty normal for the Philadelphia region to get these tastes of spring. They'll do just fine. There are some flowers that won't like it if we get a really cold snap or even some more snow.

Support the Chestnut Hill Community Association Appeal: Keeping Chestnut Hill Green--In 2012, the CHCA initiated a tree-planting program to replace aging trees. Nearly 80 trees were planted along the commercial corridor. This effort sparked many volunteers to join the effort to plant scores of trees throughout Chestnut Hill. Now we are planning green improvements, including more tree planting, in our many parks and common areas. It’s community at its best and your support makes it possible! #ChestnutHillAppeal https://www.chestnuthill.org/donate.php

    Donate - Chestnut Hill Community Association
    Your donation supports the programs we provide to Chestnut Hill residents and visitors throughout the year, including our popular free events like Pastorius Park summer concerts, Movies Under the Stars, the Chestnut Hill Community Parade and the Circle of Trees Holiday Gathering.
