Kingston Green Infrastructure, Energy and Water Project

Habitats & Heritage is helping local people and groups in the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames to develop and deliver green infrastructure, energy and water projects. We work actively with residents and community organisations to better understand the needs and priorities of those who live in the area.

Become a Tree Warden

Kingston Council is taking a new approach to community involvement in tree planting and maintenance. They want to involve residents more in tree planting decisions and enable them to take ownership of tree selection and care in their streets and parks. They have been piloting a tree wardens scheme to give interested residents and groups the opportunity to get more involved in the planting and maintenance of trees. This scheme will be reviewed and developed ongoing and will allow residents to get involved by:

  • raising funds to ‘sponsor a tree’
  • identifying areas for new trees
  • organising local community tree planting projects
  • having input into species selection and planting locations
  • helping to plant and care for trees
  • watering young trees
  • monitoring and reporting disease, decay or vandalism”
