Tree Tender Course, Part 2

 

Want to know more about the trees in your neigh­bor­hood? Want the ben­e­fits of healthy trees in your com­mu­ni­ty, for your com­mu­ni­ty? Become a Tree Tender!

Tree Ten­ders is a course from Tree Pitts­burgh that teach­es about trees in urban or built-up envi­ron­ments — col­lec­tive­ly termed the urban for­est. Specif­i­cal­ly, our cur­ricu­lum cov­ers tree biol­o­gy & ben­e­fits, tree iden­ti­fi­ca­tion for begin­ners, tree plant­i­ng, tree care, includ­ing prun­ing, and how to get involved in efforts to pro­tect and grow your patch of the urban forest.

This course is a two-part course held on con­sec­u­tive Wednes­day evenings in Sep­tem­ber: Wednes­days Sep 4 and Sep 11, 6–8.30pm.  Course for­mat includes indoor and out­door instruc­tion (weath­er per­mit­ting), with the major­i­ty of time spent indoors, and short breaks.

Reg­is­tra­tion for the two-part course cov­ers you for both classes.

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