Become a Tree Tender

Saturday, March 12, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm


This course is full. Keep watch­ing here for the next course announcement!

Want to get involved with the trees in your neigh­bor­hood or com­mu­ni­ty? Become a Tree Ten­der! Tree Ten­ders is a course from Tree Pitts­burgh that teach­es you all about trees and how to become an advo­cate for them in your neigh­bor­hood. Specif­i­cal­ly, you’ll learn about urban forestry prac­tices, tree biol­o­gy and health, basic tree iden­ti­fi­ca­tion, prop­er prun­ing and main­te­nance, and how to lead your com­mu­ni­ty in orga­niz­ing tree plant­i­ngs and tree care.

This course will be held on Sat­ur­day, March 12, 2022 from 9:00 am‑4:00 p.m. at the Tree Pitts­burgh Cam­pus in Lawrenceville. Pack a lunch, (and maybe snacks!) since this is an all-day train­ing and food will not be pro­vid­ed. Tea and cof­fee will be avail­able. Weath­er per­mit­ting, we may con­duct a small por­tion of train­ing out of doors.

For your safe­ty, masks will be required dur­ing the course. We will con­tin­u­ous­ly mon­i­tor the impact of Covid on our region and adapt to a vir­tu­al class if nec­es­sary. All par­tic­i­pants will be informed of a change by Feb­ru­ary 28.

Park­ing is avail­able on cam­pus at no cost.
