Do you love trees?
Whether your passion is about getting your hands dirty planting trees, working with your local community, or simply being the eyes, ears and voice for the trees down your street, then you may have what it takes to be a Tree Warden.
Being a Tree Warden is all about making trees matter in your local area. It enables people like you to play an active role in conserving and enhancing the trees and woods that you see and enjoy in your community every day.
A national network of local tree volunteers
The Tree Warden Scheme is a national initiative founded and co-ordinated by The Tree Council. We have many Tree Warden Networks with Tree Warden Co-ordinators right across the UK helping local tree enthusiasts to get involved and care for the trees in their area. Tree Warden volunteers are usually appointed by local councils or other community organisations, and working together, Tree Warden activities and projects are often wonderfully autonomous, and tailor-made to benefit the local area and community.
Every year, The Tree Council invites our Tree Wardens to Regional Forums where they can come together to network, share ideas and be inspired by presentations, workshops and the outdoor site visits and mini-training sessions. Check out our recent round-up of our 2018 Forums here!
Go to our Near You map to find your local network and contact the Tree Warden Co-ordinator to enquire how you can become a Tree Warden! You’ll find their details on the network listing.
If there isn’t a local network in your area and you would like to get one started please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or you may like to get in touch with the Tree Officer in your Local Authority (they may be found in the planning department) to discuss the possibility of starting one.
