Our work doesn’t stop at plant­i­ng trees. After they are plant­ed, it’s impor­tant to con­tin­ue to care for young trees. This includes water­ing, weed­ing, mulching, and prun­ing. When it comes to trees, Tree Pitts­burgh cares for trees with an 8” diam­e­ter or less. Larg­er trees are the main­te­nance respon­si­bil­i­ty of city or bor­ough pub­lic man­age­ment, or prop­er­ty owners.

To learn more about car­ing for trees on your pri­vate prop­er­ty, vis­it our Basic Tree Care and Main­te­nance page.

Tree Pitts­burgh cares for young trees in a few ways.

Tree Care Crews & Staff

Tree Pitts­burgh has a team of year-round and sea­son staff mem­bers who care for young trees through the chang­ing of the sea­sons. The crews change from year to year, but the work is the same: to pro­tect our urban for­est through prop­er young tree care.

You can check for any open tree care posi­tions on our Employ­ment & Intern­ships page.
