Join or Lead a Tree Care Team in 2013


Learn Tree Care skills while helping to improve the health and productivity of urban fruit trees!


Each tree care team will care for a cluster of PFTP-registered trees, visiting each tree once per season to complete the full spectrum of care. Each team is instructed and guided by two 'Team Leaders' with experience and skills in organic fruit tree care. This is a unique opportunity to develop strong skills in organic fruit tree care, meet new people, and care for trees providing food to your community!


Members and Leaders will participate in ten 3-hour work parties over an 11 month period (January-November, 2013). Topics/tasks will include: Winter and Summer Pruning, Young Tree Training and Care, Pest and Disease Management, Fruit thinning and more. At the end of the program you will receive a certificate of completion.
