Tree Tender courses
September 15 (9-4 at Whole Foods, 5880 Center Avenue) September 23 & 30, and October 7 (5:30-8:30 at the Pittsburgh Project, 2801 N. Charles St.) October 15, 22, and 29 (5:30-8:30 at the Hill House, 1835 Center Avenue) Tree Tender courses -- Urban trees contribute to our air and water quality, land integrity, stormwater solutions, energy efficiency, property values, and quality of life. Many of Pittsburgh's remaining street trees are at risk due to disease, vandalism, old age and neglect, and residents can help reverse the trend. Consider being part of the solution by attending a Tree Tender course, offered by the Friends of the Pittsburgh Urban Forest and the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy's TreeVitalize program. Learn to plant and care for young street trees, increasing their chance of survival in the urban environment, and bring more street trees to your neighborhood.
