Tree Planting & Maintenance


LU has partnered with the Tree Pittsburgh: Lawrenceville Tree Tenders to plant and maintain over 600 trees in the community. The Lawrenceville Tree Tenders are a group of residents in the Lawrenceville neighborhood of who host monthly pruning parties during warmer weather, organize cleanups and planting of street and park trees, and work together on special projects like the Tree Park at Stanton and Keystone, and the orchard in Duncan Park at 54th and Duncan. They also educate residents and homeowners on the value of trees as part of a healthy, attractive community.
