Tree Planting

Tree planting can offset some of the carbon dioxide, which is contributing to climate change, and improve air quality. The Tree Warden Scheme is a national initiative to help in conserving and enhancing their local trees and woods. Volunteers are appointed by parish councils or other community organisations. 

Guidance on Trees for Parish and Town Councils has been produced by The National Association of Local Council (NALC) and the Woodland Trust. It provides information on the Tree Charter which can be used, in conjunction with strategies such as neighbourhood planning and the Tree Warden Scheme, to support local council practice regarding trees. More information can be found on The National Association of Local Council website
