Tree Corps is an arboriculture workforce development program designed to provide valuable training and entry-level job placement for Cleveland residents in the tree care industry. It’s funded by a generous grant from the Cleveland Foundation.
This could have significant ecological, economic, and social consequences.
So in 2018, Holden Forests & Gardens piloted the innovative Tree Corps Program, which helps the environment as well as the local economy. Since then, we’ve learned a lot, and we’re excited to launch a new, expanded phase of the Tree Corps program that welcomes young adults, professionals, and communities
Tree Corps CREW Program
Tree Corps Crew (Cleveland-Region Experiential Work) offers a paid job experience, with training in tree-care and related careers for young Cleveland-area residents.
The 8-member Tree Corps Crew spends 6 weeks learning key arboriculture skills, engaging in field experiences, and working on tree and land care related to the Cleveland Tree Plan.
The program concludes with a capstone project and opportunities to shadow green career professionals. CREW provides experience, exposure, and difference-making work for folks who have not otherwise had an opportunity to engage in green careers.
