Our Landscape Services team work to:
- help conserve the landscape, both natural and man-made
- increase public awareness of conservation across the district
- make conservation improvements to benefit both people and wildlife
As we are a small team, much of the work we achieve is only possible with the help of volunteers. We have a number of volunteer community groups in the district who are always looking for extra help as there is always plenty to do.
You can contact our Landscape Services team if you would like to volunteer to help us with our conservation work.
Volunteer for the Tree Warden scheme
The tree warden scheme is a national initiative set up by the Tree Council. It aims to find volunteers with an interest in tree matters in their local community.
As a Tree Warden, you will work with our Landscape Services team to act as the eyes and ears of the district to protect and enhance the trees in our landscape.
You don’t need any experience to join the scheme, just an enthusiasm for trees. Our Landscape Services team will provide you with a handbook, training and advice on your role as a Tree Warden.
You can speak to our Landscape Services team if want to become a Tree Warden volunteer.
You can get more information on the scheme from the Tree Council.
