Volunteer with the Tree Tenders

A group of trained volunteers who coordinate the delivery, planting, and maintenance of street trees throughout our neighborhood. Our organizers host two annual plantings - one in Spring and one in Fall. Signing up for Street Trees is free through the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society. In 2022, our Tree Tenders planted over 100 trees!
