Become the new Parish Council Tree Warden

After many years of assisting the community the current Parish Council tree warden is stepping down.  The Parish Council is therefore seeking a new volunteer tree warden.

Tree Wardens do not need to be tree experts but tree enthusiasts!  The Tree Council will provide a handbook and resources to assist you and training events are also organised by the local tree network co-ordinator at Braintree District Council.  In addition the retiring warden would be happy to have a chat with you by way of 'handover'.

The leaflet below sets out more information about the scheme and as you can see it can be as varied as you wish but Great Notley Parish Council is specifically looking for a person to carry out the following - 

Take a look at any trees subject to a Tree Preservation Order where the owner has applied for planning permission to carry out works to the tree - the Clerk would advise you of the details and you would just need to take a look at the paperwork and tree and report back to her.  There are usually around ten to fifteen applications per year.

Become involved in the emerging Community Orchard project to plant trees in an area at Panner's Field for the benefit of the Community.

Assist in the maintenance of a handful of trees owned by the Parish Council and monitor their welfare.
