Tree Tenders in Polish Hill

TreeVitalize Pittsburgh has approved Polish Hill Civic Association’s application for the Fall 2008 planting season! How absolutely wonderful; great work PHCA Board!

Want to be a part of this exciting process as we green Polish Hill? The more Tree Tenders that are trained, the more trees we’ll be able to plant!

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.

September 4th, 11th, and 18th, in Westinghouse Park, 7051 Thomas Blvd. in North Point Breeze
