Carrick tree tenders
Recently, on a chilly Sunday morning in November, Carrick Tree Tenders (bottom row) Councilwoman Natalia Rudiak and Linda Donohoe and (standing) Alice Vaday, Sallyjoe Guzik from Tree Pittsburgh, Dave Dutzik, Joe Krynock, Kate Thomes and John Rudiak, weeded and mulched trees from Sankey Avenue to Beck's Run Road. On a previous Sunday, they celebrated October "Mulch Madness" by mulching trees from W. Cherryhill Avenue to Birmingham Avenue. Carrick has planted more than 90 new trees in 2010 and more are on the way. Anyone wishing to be a tree tender must be certified by attending classes and performing several tree tending sessions.
