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 co-ordinated 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.
