Hello Watershed Residents and Neighbors! 


Are you interested in trees? Are you involved in your community but want to branch out? Become a Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS) Tree Tender! 


PHS's Tree Tenders program is a nationally-recognized certification program that has taught over 4,000 people how to plant and take care of trees!

This winter, TTF is sponsoring community members to take this $25 training for FREE

TTF will pay the $25 fee for you to attend the training if you live in our watershed and pledge to join your local Tree Tenders group or Shade Tree Commission! 

In the PHS Tree Tenders training, you will learn:
  • The benefits of trees 
  • Tree biology and urban stresses 
  • How to plant and care for trees
  • How to organize a tree planting in your community
TTF cares about trees because they protect our watershed and its inhabitants by cleaning the water and air, reducing flooding and energy usage, and moderating temperatures. 

If you are interested, please fill out this contract and return it to Abby Grosslein at [address removed] or TTF Watershed Partnership, 1 Awbury Road, Philadelphia PA 19138. Questions? Call[masked]
