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.
