About Tree Mulching Parties
Tree Pittsburgh has been hosting a series of mulching parties throughout Pittsburgh neighborhoods to care for trees that have recently been planted by TreeVitalize. On Tuesday, June 30, Tree Pittsburgh will bring their tools to Troy Hill from 6 to 8 p.m.
Anyone is welcome to join the Tree Tenders for a few hours of fun. Just visit the registration page to ensure you receive email notifications with specific meet-up details!
The Tree Pittsburgh event guide lists weeding, mulching, and adjusting stakes as the key activities. These could get a little messy, so volunteers are encouraged to check the weather and dress appropriately in clothing they don’t mind getting dirty.
Don’t worry if your experience with tree care is limited! Tree Pittsburgh will supply all the necessary tools and materials for the mulching party, and show you exactly how to help.
A healthy start for each tree is vital in ensuring the successful growth of Pittsburgh’s “urban forest.”
Look for a mulching party in your area on the events calendar!
About Tree Pittsburgh
Tree Pittsburgh seeks to protect and restore Pittsburgh’s tree life through community care, education, and advocacy. It was formed in 2006 out of community concern and the City of Pittsburgh’s Shade Tree Commission’s desire for an urban forestry organization.
Tree Pittsburgh strives to create a healthy “urban forest” by inspiring community members to maintain, plant and protect trees in all neighborhoods around the city to maximize the environmental and economic benefits trees provide.
