The Tree Warden Scheme is a national initiative to enable people to play an active role in conserving and enhancing their local trees and woods. The scheme was founded and is co-ordinated by The Tree Council and Salisbury City Council has joined the Wiltshire Network of Tree Wardens which is coordinated by Wiltshire Council’s Rights of Way and Countryside Service.
Tree Wardens are volunteers appointed by parish councils or other community organisations. They gather information about their local trees, get involved in local tree matters and encourage local practical projects related to the trees and woods
