Interested in trees – come along to the inaugural meeting of Surrey Heath Tree Wardens

Two Camberley residents, Trefor Hogg and Jerry Brownlee, are instigating a tree warden scheme for Surrey Heath, in conjunction the the Borough Council’s Arboricultural Officer.

They’re looking for tree wardens and helpers in every ward and village in Surrey Heath. I’m told that there are two volunteers in West End, in addition to Trefor and Jerry.

There’s an existing Surrey Tree Wardens Network, with Trefor and Jerry looking to establish the Surrey Heath element. Trefor says,

We will be holding our first full meeting on 25th September 7:00 pm, in the Olive Room, The Link Building, St John the Baptist Church, Church Road, Windlesham GU20 6BL.

This is early notification of the meeting, an agenda will be published on Facebook shortly. If you’re interested to helping lease let jerry.brownlee@ntlworld.com or treforh@hotmail.com know if you’re intending to attend.

Always good to be in at the beginning. Trefor’s Facebook Page is HERE.

Fact: Surrey Heath is the greenest Borough and has the highest tree cover in Britain at 40.6%.

Here are a couple of interesting photos of trees in the borough, one of Phillyrea latifolia by Bagshot Station, and another of an unusually shaped Scots Pine in Lightwater Country Park.

  1. I see a number of divided trees like that when we are out in the countryside in the Czech Republic. I am advised it is the result of a deer eating the main shoot of a sapling. The tree then throws out 2 new shoots.
