Tree Wardens

Volunteering as a Tree Warden is a great opportunity for people to play a part in conserving and enhancing local trees and woodlands. The scheme is open to all adults and there is no minimum skill level or time commitment required. Tree Wardens carry out a range of activities, from setting up tree nurseries and growing trees, to surveying and recording trees of local interest and organising awareness events for schools and communities. There are a range of training opportunities for Tree Wardens and the role is ideal for people who want to learn more about nature and are passionate about local woodlands.

More information about the Tree Warden scheme can be obtained from the Parish Clerk.
