The Tree Warden Scheme is a national initiative to enable people to play an active role in conserving and enhancing their local trees and woods. The scheme was founded and is co-ordinated by The Tree Council.
Tree Wardens are volunteers, appointed by parish councils or other community organisations, who gather information about their local trees, get involved in local tree matters and encourage local practical projects related to the trees and woods.
Every year, Tree Warden Forums are convened by The Tree Council working with our regional co-ordinators. Our upcoming series for 2018 will be updated during late Summer. Full details for this including booking a place, will be made available in the 'other goodies' part of our 'shop/donate' section of this website.
To find out if there is a network in your area go to the Near You map. If there is a network in your area just contact the co-ordinator, whose details are on the network listing.
The Tree Council is keen to hear from you if there is no local network in your area and you would like to get one started or you may like to get in touch with the Tree Officer in your Local Authority (probably in the planning department) to discuss the possibility of starting one.
