Aspinwall needs resident for shade tree commission
Aspinwall council is seeking someone to serve on the borough's shade tree commission.
The goal of the committee is to maintain and grow the borough's right-of-way canopy.
The five-year term involves monthly meetings and participation in occasional tree planting, trimming and mulching.
Members of the committee are required to take the Tree Tender course through Tree Pittsburgh. The class is offered throughout the year and covers urban forestry practices, tree biology and health, proper planting and maintenance. Students will also learn how to lead a tree-planting event in the community. Cost is $40.
Founded in 2006, Tree Pittsburgh is dedicated to restoring and protecting the region's urban forest. Learn more at treepittsburgh.org.
Anyone interested in serving on the borough committee can call the municipal office at 412-781-0213.
