Tree Tender
Tree Ten­ders are on the front lines of car­ing for the urban for­est. Become a Tree Ten­der today!

Tree Pittsburgh’s vol­un­teer pro­gram can fit any indi­vid­ual, group or cor­po­rate need.

Indi­vid­u­als, sign up for any open event using our cal­en­dar. Reg­is­tra­tion is required for all events so we have a prop­er head count. If you’re part of a larg­er group which would like to vol­un­teer togeth­er on tree care and main­te­nance in the City of Pitts­burgh, con­tact Direc­tor of Tree Care and Refor­esta­tion Jake Milof­sky. If you’d like to vol­un­teer at the Tree Pitts­burgh Her­itage Nurs­ery, con­tact Nurs­ery Direc­tor Megan Palo­mo.

Cor­po­rate groups inter­est­ed in vol­un­teer­ing, vis­it our Cor­po­rate Giv­ing page.
