In response to the declining tree population in Germantown and a growing demand for street trees, TTF has created the Wingohocking Tree Tenders Group. The group will serve to educate residents on the benefits of trees in urban areas, help plan and implement new tree plantings, and help care for existing trees. This is an fun and exciting group of people who are focused on beautifing the Germantown neighborhood!
The Tree Tender Training is offered through the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society and includes tree biology, urban stresses on trees, tree identification, basic pruning and root care, tree planting, community organizing and access to a network of highly motivated and dedicated tree lovers.
The next training will be held on May 20th, 27th and June 3rd from 5:45pm-8:45pm at 100 N. 20th St, 19103. Sign up soon to get your certification!
