About the network

Trees are one of the most important natural elements within the urban landscape of the City and District of St.Albans, and the District Council, like all local authorities, has a duty to protect these trees for their amenity value in public open spaces and on Council properties.

In partnership with local Parish Councils and the Hertfordshire Countryside Management Services the St.Albans District Council launched its Tree Wardens network in November 2007 to give people who feel that trees matter an opportunity to champion their local trees and woods.

To date we have 21 wardens whose main activities are:

  • Acting as eyes and ears for the District Council Trees Officers
  • Acting as a point of contact between the Community and District council
  • Carrying out practical activities
