Workshop topics include tree biology, identification, planting, and proper care. You will be joining one of the nation’s oldest, most respected volunteer urban tree-care program.

Tree Tenders are given the tools to plant and nurture trees in their own neighborhoods. Regionally, there are over 6,200 Tree Tenders from 100 + neighborhoods!
