Section one of handbook

Please note that the Tree Warden handbook is no longer available. Instead, we now have a set of new Tree Warden Learning Guides, created exclusively for member networks of The Tree Council’s Tree Warden Scheme. Tree Warden Coordinators are able to access these directly via the Coordinator Space on our website. If you are a Tree Warden volunteer, please get in touch with your Network Coordinator for a copy of the Learning Guides.

Tree Wardens supported by Postcode Local Trust

Postcode Local Trust is a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery. In 2020, we received £20,000 from the Trust to develop and launch new training materials for our Tree Warden volunteers across the country. This crucial information will give all volunteers baseline knowledge on important tree matters and give them confidence, and to allow others to have confidence in them, as they take action in their communities.
