Trees are coming to Stanton Heights! We have applied to receive a few dozen trees this Spring and hope to apply for more in the future. One factor that determines how many new trees our neighborhood receives is having trained tree-tenders who can assist with plantings and pruning trees, as needed. We can receive 10 trees for every trained tender who resides in our neighborhood. To become a trained tree-tender, check out the info below:
The next course is approaching fast on Saturday, December 12th in Carnegie PA. The class runs from 9a.m.-4 p.m at the Carnegie Borough Building at One Veterans Way, Carnegie PA 15106.
You can register at www.treepittsburgh.org or contact Joe at 412-781-8733 for more information.
The Tree Tenders course will teach you about urban forestry practices, tree biology and health, proper planting techniques, and a whole lot more. Food will be provided as well as your very own Tree Tender t-shirt.
Classes do have limited seating and fill up fast, don’t wait- register today!
