Become a Tree Tender!

Over the past four years, LoMo has planted over 250 trees in our neighborhood! We never could have done it without the help of LoMo’s Tree Tenders, a group of residents who each have received hands-on training through the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society. LoMo’s Tree Tenders are our neighborhood’s tree ambassadors – they encourage more residents to plant trees and care for them properly, and also lead volunteers during our spring and fall plantings.

Want to join the ranks of LoMo’s Tree Tenders and help make this our greenest year yet? Sign up for a PHS Tree Tenders course this year!

The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s Tree Tenders® program offers nine hours of hands-on tree care training for residents of the five-county Philadelphia region. The training will cover tree biology, identification, planting, proper care and working within your community.

Available for ISA, PA LA, Act 48 and PLNA credit. Given the intensity of the training and the evening hours, the course is not appropriate for children under 16.

Pennsylvania Horticultural Society

Classes take place at the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s offices, located at 100 N. 20th Street, 5th Floor, Philadelphia, PA. The fee for each course is $25. Visit the PHS website for the latest class schedule.
