Trees for Healthy Living
You will find out why trees are critical to healthy living, and how they impact our environmental, economic, social, and physical health. You will hear what the
program is and how it helps increase the tree cover in SE Pennsylvania. And you will get the answers to the 10 or more most common tree questions! This is your chance to find out what the real story is with
tree roots and pipes,
and what the deal is with
Mindy Maslin, our presenter, was a social worker, community organizer, political and environmental activist in 1991 when she saw taking care of our city’s trees as an opportunity to develop a
neighborhood-based citizen stewardship program
. She founded the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS) Tree Tenders program in 1993 and continues to lead it with the aim of increasing Philly’s tree canopy from 20% to 30%. PHS has trained more than 5,500 volunteer Tree Tenders, who plant more than 2,000 trees a year in neighborhoods in the Greater Philadelphia area. The program is at the forefront of the urban tree movement across the country. It offers hands-on tree care training covering biology, identification, planting and proper care. Caring for trees, she says, is "a natural way of revitalizing communities.”
