Tree Wardens play an active role in conserving and enhancing our local trees and woods.

The East Devon Tree Warden Network consists of 53 volunteer tree wardens who are appointed by and represent 42 of the 76 Parishes across the district.

The responsibilities of Tree Wardens are to keep an eye on protected trees, to raise awareness of the value of trees in the local community and to encourage people to look after trees carefully in conjunction with the Parish Council.

Tree Wardens work closely with the District Council by flagging up potential threats to trees arising from any changes to land or property ownership as well as raising concerns regarding safety issues particularly to public roads, footpaths and open spaces.

A tree warden can do as much or as little as they like, depending on the workload in the parish and their own interests and available time. We have posts available for 34 parishes across East Devon, see below.
