PA Horticultural Society Tree Tenders Basic Training Begins In May In Southeast
The course is available for ISA credit and is appropriate for anyone over age 16. The course fee is $25.
The nine-hour, three-session PHS Tree Tenders training course empowers and teaches concerned residents how to make dramatic strides toward restoring and caring for trees in their region, community, or even their own yard.
This program supports Plant One Million, a regional partnership led by PHS to plant one million trees in southeastern Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey, and Delaware. The series will take place at the following locations this fall:
-- Montgomery County: Tuesdays, May 2, 9, and 16, 6 to 9:15 p.m., Greater Plymouth Community Center, 2910 Jolly Road, Plymouth Meeting ;
-- Philadelphia: Mondays, May 8, 15, and 22, 5:45 to 9 p.m., PHS Town Hall, 100 North 20th Street, Philadelphia; and
-- Chester County, Thursdays, May 25, June 1 and 8, 5:30 to 8:45 p.m., Tredyffrin Public Library, 582 Upper Gulph Road, Strafford.
PHS Tree Tenders training offers hands-on instruction and covers tree biology, identification, planting, proper care, and working within your community. Tree Tenders work alongside local tree agencies, leveraging resources and extending the impact of municipal tree stewardship.
A community can form a PHS Tree Tenders group by having three or more people graduate from the course. Benefits include tree grant and volunteer tree planting opportunities. Pre-registration is required.
