Become a Tree Tender

The MACC & TreeVitalize Pittsburgh a partnership to restore tree cover in the Pittsburgh region) invites you to join in the effort by REQUESTING a planting of a FREE Street Tree on your sidewalk. Street trees are trees planted between a street curb & sidewalk.

Request includes FREE evaluation of site, FREE curb cut (if needed), FREE Tree (if approved), FREE planting. Please know that the trees will be sized appropriately to the area; relieving the possibilities of too large roots that can damage sidewalks and utilities. Please know that these are smaller shade trees and not overwhelming forest trees.

If you haven’t noticed, we have already planted over 50 sidewalk street trees in the community and we hope to reach 100 or more by 2010.

If you would like to be considered for a

FREE tree & planting, contact Amy Ervin at 412-414-7407.
