Tree Tenders is a community based program where residents help plant and care for trees in our own communities. Become a PHS Tree Tender and join us in our efforts to beautify your neighborhood. The PHS Tree Tenders program offers hands-on tree care training for residents interested in greening their neighborhoods. Neighborhoods with more trees are safer, cooler in the summer and have healthier residents! The training covers tree biology, identification, planting, proper care, and working within your community. For more information click here. The next Tree Tenders classes will be on Wed. April 30th, May 7th and 14th from 5:45-9 at the Science Leadership Academy 55N. 22nd St. Phila. PA 19103.
