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. 

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.

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. Check out this fly­er to learn more about oppor­tu­ni­ties each season.

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.
