Tree Tenders® is a training program that empowers concerned residents to make dramatic strides towards restoring and caring for the tree canopy in their communities.

This training course was developed by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS) in collaboration with Penn State Extension Urban Foresters in southeast Pennsylvania.

The course is designed for lay people and experts alike. Become one of the Tree Tenders restoring and tending your part of the forest.

Since 1993 PHS has trained over 3200 Tree Tenders in 150 PA neighborhoods. Since 2004, the program has been supported by the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. In 2008 the program expanded to Pittsburgh and smaller metropolitan areas, and since 2013 it has been available statewide. Nearly 2000 additional Tree Tenders have since been trained.

Instruction is provided by DCNR’s Bureau of Forestry, in partnership with Penn State Extension, PHS, Tree Pittsburgh and other local urban forestry experts.

Completion of a Tree Tenders® Workshop fulfills a requirement for TreeVitalize® Statewide Tree Planting Grant and Pittsburgh /Philadelphia Tree Requests.

Continuing Education Units (CEUs)
ISA Certified Arborist, Certified Horticulturist, and Landscape Architecture CEUs will be awarded upon completion of the course requirements.
