Join the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society in learning how to plant and care for neighborhood trees by becoming a “Tree Tender” this spring.

PHS and its partners have launched Plant One Million, the nation’s largest multi-state tree campaign, to replenish the tree population of 13 counties in the Greater Philadelphia region, southern New Jersey and Delaware.  PHS Tree Tenders® is a nine-hour hands-on tree care course that supports Plant One Million by empowering concerned residents to help restore and care for their local tree canopy.  Help beautify your neighborhood and region by planting trees!  The 2011 spring trainings will be held in the following locations:

Montgomery County – Tuesdays

Given the intensity of the training and the late hours, the training is not appropriate for children under 16.  Continuing education credits are available for ISA, PA LA, PLNA and Act 48.  Partial and full scholarships are available on request.

Your Community can form a Tree Tenders group by having three or more people from your community graduate from the course.  Benefits include tree grant and volunteer tree planting opportunities.
