Tree WardeningThis is a way for volunteers to play an active role in championing their local treescape. Tree Wardens can get involved with a range of activities, from practical projects such as planting and caring for trees to gathering information about local trees, campaigning for better tree protection and planning and developing imaginative projects to encourage others, including community groups, families and schools, to value their local trees and woods.
Wirral Tree WardensWe operate on a voluntary basis within Wirral Environmental Network. There are voluntary tree warden groups across UK, co-ordinated by a charity, the Tree Council, which helps us increase public awareness of tree issues, including diseases and threats to our trees. http://www.treecouncil.org.uk/About-Us We are also members of the Orchard Network https://ptes.org/campaigns/traditional-orchard-project/orchard-network/ and The Conservation Volunteers http://www.tcv.org.uk/ We work closely with community, sustainability and environment groups and are keen to help with local tree issues and initiatives. There are meetings every second month, and regular practical projects. These activities are open to anyone to join in and we are very happy to swap skills and ideas.
We manage a demonstration orchard at Brimstage Hall as a countryside stewardship project to restore and conserve a traditional orchard with its associated wildlife and landscape. This is subject to planning applications as the landlords, Leverhulme Estates, are considering making a car park inside the orchard, to which we have made objections. More details are available on the Wirral Tree Wardens FaceBook page.
