We are looking to appoint a number of tree wardens in the village and are seeking suitable people who are willing to get involved in the local community.
Tree wardens are the eyes and ears of their neighbourhood and will be the focal point for any issues. They will act as the link on tree matters between the community and the parish council and can be the catalyst for getting tree projects started and supported.
Tree wardens are not expected to be experts and training will be given.
Many wardens combine tree warden responsibilities with another activity such as walking their dog so it should not take up too much of your time.
The main characteristics are looking for are:
Being professional and understanding that sometimes trees have to be removed for safety reasons
Genuinely caring for the environment and the trees in it
Be willing to learn and able to deal with people at all levels
Have a basic knowledge of trees
There is no age limit
Our tree wardens will get involved in any planting schemes, map trees in the village, offer an opinion to the parish council if work to trees is required and gather information about our trees.
If you are interested, please contact the parish clerk in the first instance by emailing or call 07873 891351.
