VOLUNTEERING VACANCIES

ST GORAN PARISH COUNCIL.     TREE OFFICER

The Tree Council have been running a tree warden scheme since 1991 and are seeking interest in revitalising and extending this initiative within Cornwall to interested parishes. The Forestry Team have asked the Parish Council if they would like to nominate a tree warden. 

Tree Wardens can work closely with their local community to better understand and share information about their local trees and to capture opportunities that the community may be interested in – for example the Ancient Tree Hunt – identify veteran trees within the parish; tree planting where appropriate and accessing funds or trees (for example at present the Woodland Trust are offering free trees to communities at the moment).  In addition they can often see issues developing before our officers become aware of it to ensure appropriate responses.   

If you are interested in becoming a Tree Officer, please contact the Clerk of St Goran Parish Council stgorranpc@btinternet.com
