Tree Tenders are trained volunteers who are authorized to care for small city-owned trees during Tree Care Days. This special group of volunteers participate in a three-session course that equips them with the skills necessary to care for trees. Local tree experts provide instruction, and the course covers everything from tree biology to planting and pruning. Following completion of the course, Tree Tenders-in-Training participate in 10 volunteer hours (often at plantings in their neighborhoods) and a hands-on Pruning Workshop. More information about what each session covers is available on their website.
