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.
