The appointed Tree Warden for the Binsted Parish Council is currently Ben Hamlin. Ben is not a member of Parish Council but works closely with us. His remit is to act as a ‘friend of the parish’s trees’ and to encourage the planting, protection and promotion of local trees and hedges.
Tree Wardens access training days, support and advice offered through the Tree Council and they have access to the latest expert guidance, on topics from ash dieback to new alternatives to plastic tree guards.
If a parishioner wants to talk to someone local person about tree care, the Tree Warden is often willing to make visits, but purely in an advisory role. Tree Wardens also get involved in local projects, such as arranging local tree planting days, rejuvenating local woodlands in need of management, or raising funds for local tree planting projects.
