Tree Wardens

TREE WARDENS  
Are you concerned about the plight of trees in your area?
Maybe you would like to see more planting?
If so, then you may be just the person that St Ives Town Council is looking for.As St Ives Town Councillor Tamsyn Williams explains:
“We could have a number of tree wardens, similar to our footpath ones.  They could decide which area they monitor – even if it is only one street – and their role could be a flexible as they wish.  In Truro the tree warden is very active in raising funds for new planting.  But the role could be as simple as keeping an eye on significant specimens and maybe liaising with Cornwall Council’s tree and planning officers when appropriate.”The Town Council would like to assist Cornwall Council in updating Tree Preservation Orders and having wardens would help with that process.  The Council is inviting tree wardens to combine their efforts so that each area of the parish may have dedicated people to look out for their local trees in Lelant, Carbis Bay, St Ives and Halsetown.

If you want to find our more about this voluntary post,  please contact Councillor Tamsyn Williams (Tel: 01736 795695) or tamsynwilliams@stivestowncouncil.co.uk.

And if you have trees that you value in your area, please let the Town Council know, either by writing to the town council at the St Ives Guildhall, Street an Pol, St Ives, Cornwall or else contacting Councillor Williams, or by calling the town council on Tel: 01736 797840.
