Tree Tender Trainings 2007

Posted on January 2, 2007

Below you will find the complete list of Tree Tender basic trainings for 2007, both for those in the spring as well as those set for the fall.

Residents in your area of the city may attend any one of these trainings, but, as you know, those given in the city are primarily oriented around city policies and procedures and should be their first choices.

These city-based trainings have become increasing popular and we are anxious to have any of the potential new Tree Tenders you will be recruiting to register ASAP. They also should be encourage to “give up their seats” if they discover they can’t make the training so that others from the city can take them. We have been having to close the registrations before the first class each season and turn away late registrants, but still we have extra seats when the class begins due to “no shows.”

As TreeVitalize goes into its last full year of plannings, discussions are going on about continuing an agreesive program of tree planting in the city with state and other support. There is also the on-going community engagements around the city-wide Green Plan Phladelphia being developed around “green spaces” in the city’s future.

A key element in the latter is to remember that one of the primary “public spaces” in the city are the city’s streets which should all be as green as possible to reap the benefits of trees. A key to making that vision a reality is to increase the number of active Tree Tenders and, in particular, Tree Tender groups working in all of the city’s zip codes.
