PhilaU Receives 'University Green' Grant; Launches Tree Tenders ...By davisa
Philadelphia University was selected as one of five local universities to be part of the University Green pilot program. The University was selected in part because of its ongoing involvement with the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society and its commitment to the Tree Tenders project through the Landscape Architecture and Environmental Science Programs.
Along with the grant, Philadelphia University will start a Tree Tenders chapter on campus. Tree Tenders is a training program that empowers concerned residents to make drastic strides towards restoring and caring for their local tree canopy.
