In September, The Tree Council’s national Tree Warden Scheme turns thirty!

The volunteer Tree Warden Scheme started with a few community-minded local people in Leicestershire and East Sussex who wanted to plant and care for their local trees. From there, The Tree Council has grown the scheme from strength to strength to include of thousands of volunteers across the country, growing all the time, just like an oak in its prime. Over the last 30 years, dedicated and passionate Tree Wardens around the country have planted and cared for tens of millions of trees, saved and rejuvenated woodlands for community benefit, inspired successive generations to stand up for their local trees and so much more.
