Tree Wardening is a way for volunteers to play an active role in championing their local treescape.

St Albans Voluntary Tree Wardens

tree wardensTree Wardens can get involved with a range of activities, from practical projects such as planting and caring for trees to gathering information about local trees and developing imaginative projects to encourage others, including schoolchildren, to value their local trees and woods.

Over 40 volunteers have worked in the District, acting as the eyes and ears of their neighborhoods and reporting on matters such as the condition of trees, pests and diseases and safety issues.

Other activities have included leading guided walks, giving talks to local community groups and spearheading Tree Council initiatives such as the Ancient Tree Hunt, National Tree Week and seed gathering.

If you would like further information about these activities or if you would like to volunteer your services as a tree warden, please contact us at email: treewardens@stalbans.gov.uk or ring 01727 819363.
