Tree Tenders Webinar Series

September 8 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Want to get involved with the trees in your neigh­bor­hood or com­mu­ni­ty? Become a Tree Ten­der! Reg­is­ter at this link.

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 is a 3‑part webi­nar held on Wednes­days from 6–8 p.m., begin­ning Sep­tem­ber 8 We’re hold­ing this course on Zoom, so no spe­cial soft­ware is required. All you need is a com­put­er with high-speed inter­net and speak­ers, and an email address for our communications.

Course dates are as follows:

  • Sep­tem­ber 8
  • Sep­tem­ber 15
  • Sep­tem­ber 22

You must par­tic­i­pate in all 3 webi­na­rs in order to become a Tree Ten­der, but if you can’t make them live, we’ll have record­ings for you. Every­one will have to com­plete an online quiz fol­low­ing each lec­ture in order to become a cer­ti­fied Tree Ten­der. You’ll receive all the info for access­ing the webi­na­rs after reg­is­tra­tion. This course is not appro­pri­ate for par­tic­i­pants under 16 years of age.

Have ques­tions, or need more info? Con­tact joe@treepittsburgh.org or 412–781-8733 ext 204.

This Tree Ten­der Train­ing ful­fills the require­ment for Tree­Vi­tal­ize grants offered by Penn­syl­va­nia DCNR.
