Our Tree Tenders Volunteer Training multi-day course will give you a solid understanding of how trees function and what they need to survive and thrive. You’ll learn about the benefits of urban trees and the challenges they face. Our expert instructors deliver engaging indoor and outdoor sessions that will give you skills you can apply immediately.
