The Woodland Trust are looking for self-motivated volunteers with experience in tree planting to join our national network of Woodland Creation Champions. Champions use their experience and initiative to advise and support landowners, schools and community groups interested in planting trees and hedges or creating new woodland.
Champions are based at home and help with a range of tasks including enquiries about species choice, planting and maintenance, monitoring recently planted woods and supporting groups receiving free Community Tree Packs from the Woodland Trust. We’re looking for someone with good communication skills and experience in tree planting or maintenance who can spare around 2 hours each week on average. Access to transport and the internet are also required but induction, travel expenses and on-going support are provided. We particularly welcome volunteers with experience in e.g. forestry, arboriculture or community engagement but this is not essential. Champions will gain an excellent understanding of the many motivations, issues and opportunities associated with planting new woodland. It’s an excellent way to help the Woodland Trust create more resilient landscapes for wildlife- and to build, use or showcase your understanding of woodland creation.
Full details of the role are available in the task outline (PDF, 0.4MB) and Volunteering Officer Shona Morton () is happy to answer any questions you have about taking part. If you would like to apply please see the Woodland Trust website for details.
