Parish Tree Wardens
Rushcliffe Borough Council are looking to appoint tree wardens in local parishes and are appealing for people to contact them to support their aim.
The Borough hope to appoint tree wardens in every parish in their area, and will launch the project at Rushcliffe Country Park, Ruddington, on Saturday June 22, between 11.30am and 3pm.
Tree wardens can be appointed by their local parish council as the parish contact for all things tree-related in their area. The tree warden's responsibilities would include: reporting early signs of pest, disease and vandalism; as well as gathering information, surveying and recording information about trees important for wildlife and the heritage of the parish; and identifying opportunities to plant more trees. For further information, see Tree Wardens (pdf).
Mr Paul Phillips, the Environmental Sustainability Officer for the Borough, would be happy to pass on more information to anyone interested. He can be contacted on 0115 914 8595.

The name Normanton comes from the Old English Northman + tun, meaning "farmstead of the Northmen or Northern Vikings", and suggests a minority of Norwegian Vikings living in the area. The village can be traced back to at least 1086, as it appears in the Domesday Book under four entries.
The administrative parish of Normanton-on-the-Wolds covers Normanton-on-the-Wolds village and the surrounding farms and houses.
