Tree care program to be offered
MEDIA Delaware County residents have an opportunity to become a tree tender as the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society will offer a hands-on educational tree-care program.
The nine-hour course will cover identification, planting, proper care and pruning, and root care for residents to use at home or in the community.
The training, for those over 16 years old, will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. on Oct. 2, 9, and 16 at the Middletown Township building, 27 N. Pennell Rd., Media. There is a $25 fee. To register visit www.pennhort.net/treetenders.
The program was established in 1993 and has trained thousands of volunteers throughout the five-county region to properly plant and care for trees. - Mari A. Schaefer
