Tree Wardens Wanted

Become a Wiltshire Tree Warden

Following a £294,800 grant from the Government’s Forestry Commission and DEFRA Woodland Creation Accelerator Fund, Wiltshire Council is relaunching the national Tree Warden scheme across the county.

The Tree Warden Scheme is a national initiative led by the Tree Council, and Wiltshire Council is looking to recruit volunteer Tree Wardens in each Wiltshire town and parish area. Tree Wardens will work with Council Woodland Officers and act as local tree champions who help plant, promote and protect trees in appropriate locations in their local area.

Projects that Tree Wardens can be involved in could include:

  • Arranging local tree planting days
  • Watering and caring for local trees
  • Working with the local authorities and community groups to plant and care for street trees
  • Rejuvenating local woodlands
  • Raising funds and finding land for tree planting projects
  • Going into local schools to talk about the value of trees
