The Leicestershire County Council’s Stepping Stones project is looking to recruit more Tree Wardens to parishes across the county. Tree Wardens are appointed by local parish councils to coordinate local tree based environmental projects.
Tree Wardens are particularly needed at parishes in Charnwood, North West Leicestershire, Melton and Harborough.
Volunteering as a Tree Warden is a great opportunity for people to make their community a leafier place by looking after local trees. The scheme is open to all adults, and there is no minimum skill level or time commitment required. Tree Wardens carry out a range of activities, from setting up tree nurseries and growing trees, to surveying and recording trees of local interest and organising awareness events for schools and communities. The role is ideal for people who are passionate about trees and want to learn more and develop new skills.
More information about the Tree Warden scheme can be found on the website www.leics.gov.uk/tree_wardens. To find out how to sign up as a volunteer please contact [email protected] or telephone 0116 305 7221.
