About the network

The Ipswich Tree Warden Network is co-ordinated by Ipswich Borough Council’s Wildlife Team. The volunteer network was set up in Spring 2022 to coincide with the release of the Ipswich Tree Charter and in celebration of Ipswich being recognised for the first time as a Tree City of the World in 2021.

Our network is made up of passionate staff members and volunteers with a love of trees and a dedication to helping improve Ipswich for climate resilience, wildlife, access to nature and wellbeing. The Tree Wardens get involved in the local community, identify areas for tree planting, assist in managing our existing woodlands, trees and traditional Suffolk orchards and are helping us plant trees towards our goal of 22% tree cover by 2050.

From guided walks to woodland work parties, to watering trees, our tree wardens are helping the residents and visitors to Ipswich learn all about the importance of trees.

If you are passionate about trees, wildlife and the environment and would like to be part of the Ipswich Tree Warden Network then contact the Ipswich Tree Warden Co-ordinator – No experience is necessary, just a love of trees and a willingness to learn!
