Become a neighborhood greening hero! Learn about tree care and planting by participating in a PHS Tree Tenders training this spring. This eight-hour course 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 four (4) part workshop series taking place on Wednesdays,  September 9, 16, 23 and 30, 2020.

Tree Tenders are given the tools to plant and nurture trees in their own neighborhoods. Regionally, there are over 5,000 Tree Tenders from over 100 neighborhoods! Join a group or form your own Tree Tenders group, by attending the training with two neighbors.

A brief Zoom check-in will be held on Wednesday, September 2 to make sure the webinar technology is working for everyone and ensure that the September 9 session can start without delays.

If you are experiencing financial hardship but would like to become a Tree Tender, please contact [email protected] for a scholarship.
