A vacancy has arisen for a Volunteer Tree Warden working with Longdon, Queenhill and Holdfast Parish Council
Tree Wardens are local tree champions who plant, look after and stand up for the trees in their patch. Whether you want to get your hands in the earth and plant trees, raise awareness about trees in your local community, or simply be the eyes, ears and voice for the trees down your street, you have what it takes to be a Tree Warden.
What Tree Wardens do
Tree Wardens plant, protect and promote their local trees. No training or experience in tree management is needed – just a love of trees and a few hours to spare.
Tree Wardens are organised into local groups. Each group is managed by a co-ordinator and is autonomous, meeting regularly to decide what they would like to focus on.
Some of the projects Tree Warden groups have done include:
🍂 Arranging local tree planting days
🍂 Pruning, watering caring for local trees
🍂 Working with local authorities to plant & care for street trees
🍂 Rejuvenating local woodlands
🍂 Raising funds and finding land for tree planting projects
🍂 Going into schools to talk about the value of trees.
