Tree Tender
Tree Pitts­burgh couldn’t do our work with­out vol­un­teers! Whether you like car­ing for young trees, sow­ing seeds, or weed­ing we have options for you across the City of Pitts­burgh and Alleghe­ny County. 

Not sure where to begin? Email info(at) and we’ll be in touch!

Want to vol­un­teer with your office or com­mu­ni­ty groups? Check out the Groups sec­tions below!


One per­son can make an impact! There are oppor­tu­ni­ties on Tree Pittsburgh’s cam­pus, in our Her­itage Nurs­ery, or right on your street. We always sug­gest becom­ing a Tree Ten­der to max­i­mize your vol­un­teer experience!

You can check our Events Cal­en­dar for any upcom­ing vol­un­teer events. We always wel­come indi­vid­u­als to vol­un­teer at any of our pub­lic tree care days, regard­less of their neigh­bor­hood! Prun­ing work­shops are lim­it­ed to grad­u­ates of the Tree Ten­ders program.

We also offer the oppor­tu­ni­ty for indi­vid­u­als to care for the trees along your street with sup­port from Tree Pitts­burgh. Check back here for more infor­ma­tion as the pro­gram evolves!

Corporations and Groups

Vol­un­teer­ing with your cowork­ers is a great way to build rela­tion­ships while mak­ing a dif­fer­ence in your com­mu­ni­ty. The trees plant­ed, watered, and mulched will bring beau­ty to the sur­round­ing neigh­bor­hood and your team will feel the sat­is­fac­tion of a job well done!

Groups are also wel­come to vol­un­teer with Tree Pitts­burgh. We have oppor­tu­ni­ties for large and small cor­po­rate, com­mu­ni­ty, and col­lege groups to come togeth­er and make a difference.

If your office or group is inter­est­ed in vol­un­teer­ing with Tree Pitts­burgh, please con­tact info(@) and we will be in touch!

Tree Care Events

Com­mu­ni­ty Tree Care events are the heart of Tree Pittsburgh’s neigh­bor­hood-lev­el work. These events, typ­i­cal­ly orga­nized by Tree Ten­ders, bring every­one in the neigh­bor­hood togeth­er for a night of weed­ing, mulching, and of course community!

Keep your eyes peeled for any large com­mu­ni­ty tree care events on our cal­en­dar, or con­tact us to orga­nize an event in your community.
