PHS Tree Tenders® basic training begins in September

The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society will offer the PHS Tree Tenders® training series this fall in Bucks County. The nine-hour, three-session training course empowers and teaches concerned residents how to make dramatic strides toward restoring the tree canopy and caring for trees in their region, community, or even their own yards.

The series will take place on Mondays, September 18th, 25th, and October 2nd, from 6:00 to 9:15pm, at the Ben Wilson Senior Activity Center, 580 Delmont Avenue, in Warminster.

PHS Tree Tenders® training offers hands-on instruction covering tree biology, identification, planting, proper care, and working within your community. Tree Tenders often work alongside local tree agencies, leveraging resources and extending the impact of municipal tree stewardship.

The course is available for ISA credit and is appropriate for anyone over age 16. The course fee is $25 and pre-registration is required. Register online at www.pennhort.net/treetenders.

A community can form a PHS Tree Tenders® group by having three or more people graduate from the course. Benefits include tree grant and volunteer tree planting opportunities.
