How can I become involved?

Volunteers required

If you have an interest in trees and wish to become more involved with The Tree Register, we are looking for help organising events, guided walks and meetings at local and national level. We have support from many landowners to allow organised access to private collections but require help to successfully run a programme of events for our members, including the successful Alan Mitchell Lecture. Volunteer tree recorders, become one of our "Tapers", and photographers are also always welcome to help with ongoing survey work and updating of historic records.

If being a part of The Tree Register success appeals to you or wish to discuss other ways to be involve
