About

Tree Wardens in Suffolk

Tree Wardens

Tree Wardens are volunteers who work with parish councils or other community organisations. They gather information about their local trees, get involved in local tree matters and local practical projects related to trees and woods.

The Tree Warden Scheme is a national initiative founded by The Tree Council, helping local tree enthusiasts to get involved and care for the trees in their area.
