About the network

The Braintree Tree Warden network is coordinated by the district council and was set up in 1990. It now has over 60 members, and the numbers are still increasing. New members are always welcome.

The wardens, who come from many backgrounds, get involved in a whole range of activities from tree planting, to assisting in conservation projects.

Throughout the year there are guided visits to local gardens, presentations on tree related topics and practical skill sessions to enable the wardens to undertake simple but essential tree care operations like pruning.

If you are keen to help conserve our environment, and want to look after trees, please contact the co-ordinator. Whatever your skill level, your involvement will be appreciated.
