The Cotswold Tree Warden Group comprises Tree Wardens, representing the Towns and Parishes within the Cotswold District Council area, as well as other interested parties in and adjacent to the Cotswolds. It is run by a committee of volunteers.
The group organises training through both written sources and practical work to assist Tree Wardens to fulfil their role in the community. Visits and walks are also arranged and are hopefully both a source of pleasure and informative.
As part of the role of Tree Wardens is to support and advise their Town/Parish Councils, the Cotswold Tree Warden Group is happy to hear from any Town/Parish Council which feels we may be able to give practical assistance with local schemes. Examples of previous or current activities are:-
We assisted Bourton-on-the-Water in attaching number tags to trees;
Working with the community in Chedworth to plant hedging at the allotments;
Undertaking tree recording work for Cirencester Town Council.
The Committee consists of:
Chairman – Mike Hartnell
Vice-Chairman – Christopher Coghlan
Co-ordinator/Secretary – Ann Jones
Finance Officer – Jan Mills
Publicity Officer – Alan Jones
Jon Stokes – Tree Council Representative
Committee members may be contacted via our e-mail address on the ‘Contact Us’ page.
