The Leicestershire Scheme is coordinated by the Environmental Partnership Coordinator within the Strategic Partnering Team at Leicestershire County Council. Established in the early 1981, trail blazing Leicestershire Tree Wardens were among the pioneers who inspired The Tree Council’s national Tree Warden Scheme.
Leicestershire Tree Wardens are appointed by their Parish/Town Councils or District/Borough Council for urban areas. SHIRE Environmental Grants are available from the County Council for a variety of schemes including tree planting, for further information contact the network coordinators. As coordinators LCC organise training and social events for Tree Wardens as well as offering practical support and advice.
