Tree Pittsburgh loves all of our volunteers! But for those wanting to take their volunteerism to the next level, we recommend the Tree Tenders Course. Tree Tenders not only help to care for young trees, but garner community support and organize Tree Care Events for their neighbors!
Tree Tenders also have the unique opportunity to help us care for young trees through Pruning Workshops. These events are only open to those who have completed our Tree Tenders Course and received their certification. Pruning workshops provide small-group instruction on pruning under the supervision of our ISA Certified Arborists around the City of Pittsburgh.
We also offer Tree Tenders certification for facilities management, municipal employees, and other groups. Tree Tenders Courses are intended for groups 16 and over. For information on Tree Tenders Courses for youth, reach out to Education Coordinator Maeve Rafferty at maeve(at)treepittsburgh.org.
