The Tree Council's members range from voluntary and community organisations, non-departmental government bodies, local authorities and key government departments, all concerned with trees, biodiversity and the environment in general. We aim to develop channels for dialogue and co-operation between professionals within this wide membership to mobilise the sector, to develop and influence policy, enhance performance within the tree sector and improve communications between organisations to prevent isolation and maximise impact.
As an independent charity, The Tree Council is able to put forward balanced views to central and local government, industry and other organisations.
There are different types of Tree Council members: Full, Consultative and Associate members.
Full Members are independent not-for-profit organisations with a national (British, Scottish, Welsh, English or UK) remit, committed to the planting, care, conservation and value of trees.

• Independent not-for-profit organisations with a local remit (including groups affiliated to parent environmental organisations), committed to the planting, care conservation and value of trees
