Penn State Extension Tree Tenders Training, Aug. 30 Tom Ridge Environmental Center Erie

Tree Tenders training will be held by Penn State Extension on August 30 at the Tom Ridge Environmental Center in Erie from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Join thousands of other concerned citizens like yourself and become a Tree Tender and help increase tree canopy cover in your community.
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.
The course is designed for lay people and experts alike.
Instruction is provided by DCNR’s Bureau of Forestry, in partnership with Penn State Extension, Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, The Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, and other local urban forestry experts.
Since 1993 the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society has trained over 6,000 Tree Tenders in 150 Pennsylvania neighborhoods.
Since 2004, the program has been supported by the 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 2,000 additional Tree Tenders have since been trained.
