About Tree Wardens
Run by some local authorities in conjunction with the Tree Council (a national charitable organisation dedicated to tree conservation), the Tree Warden Scheme encourages people to get involved in Tree Conservation in their local community and to undertake practical projects championing trees and woods in their area.
What do they do?
Tree Wardens undertake a range of activities:
- Planting and caring for trees and managing local woodland.
- Setting up tree nurseries
- Surveying trees
- Getting together with like-minded people for training and field-trips
- Working with local schools and groups
- Leading guided tree walks and talking to local groups
…and much more.
The Countryside Management Service (CMS) offers practical advice to Tree Wardens via their local authority representative. The Service also provides training days to equip potential volunteers with the knowledge and skills that they need as a Tree Warden.
Schemes supported by CMS are currently operating in:
- Welwyn Hatfield
- St Albans
To find out about the next training day offered by CMS see our Walks and More pages.
