2023 tree tender fall training hero update

PHS trains Tree Tenders and provides the resources needed to plant and nurture trees in their own neighborhoods. Regionally, there are over 6,500 Tree Tenders from 100+ neighborhoods! Join an existing group or form your own Tree Tenders group by attending the training with two neighbors.

Learn about tree care and planting by participating in a PHS Tree Tenders training this fall. This eight-hour course offered both in-person AND virtually, offers topics including tree biology, identification, planting, and proper care. You will be joining one of the nation’s oldest, most respected volunteer urban tree care programs.

This is a three (3) part workshop series taking place on Wednesday evenings: September 20 & 27 and October 4, 6;00 pm - 8:30 pm. Attendees may catch up on a missed live session by viewing the session recordings at their convenience, though we do encourage live participation whenever possible.
