What Tree Wardens do

Tree Wardens plant, protect and promote their local trees. No training or experience in tree management is needed – just a love of trees and a few hours to spare. Would you like to be a Rothbury Tree Warden?

Tree Wardens are organised into local groups. Rothbury's is the first group in Northumberland. It is managed by Katie Scott, and is autonomous. We meet regularly to decide what we would like to focus on.

 

Some of the projects other Tree Warden groups have done include:

  • Arranging local tree planting days

  • Pruning, watering and giving vital aftercare to local trees after planting

  • Working with local authorities to plant and care for our precious street trees

  • Rejuvenating local woodlands in need of management

  • Raising funds and identifying suitable land for local tree-planting projects

  • Going into schools to talk to young people about the value of trees.
