In Autumn 2020, Ben Hamlin became a Volunteer Tree Warden for Binsted parish, followingr an initiative by East Hampshire District Council and the Tree Council to recruit new tree wardens to the East Hants Tree Warden Network.

Tree Wardens are local tree champions who plant, look after and stand up for the trees in their patch. Organised by the Tree Council, these volunteers carry out and encourage practical projects, involving the community in planting, protecting and promoting their local trees.

If you have any questions about trees that you would like to discuss, you can contact Ben at
