Could you be one of Trees for Seaford’s new core members? We’re launching ’20 for 20′ in a bid to get more residents involved in planting and looking after trees in our town.

That’s 20 people who want to be a core member of a community group taking positive action to increase the number of trees in our streets and public spaces in 2020 (and beyond!).

You may know us as Seaford Tree Wardens, the name given to the volunteer scheme we are part of which is run by the National Tree Council. 

And a lot has been achieved under that name over the 10 years the group has been running. From lining the main road on the approach into the town, to planting disease resistant Elms and starting up a project at the ‘Last Wood’ on the Alfriston Rd. To date, we’ve planted approximately 1,500 trees in our town!

We’re re-launching as Trees for Seaford in 2020 and want to get more people involved so we can keep planting and looking after our trees for the future.

 Specifically, we’re looking to recruit a core group of 20 people who share our positive ethos and can contribute a regular amount of time.

Do you like being outside and getting your hands dirty? Then you could join one of the practical tree care sessions which run the first Saturday of each month over the Spring and Summer or the planting days in Spring/Autumn.

More of an organiser who would enjoy helping liaising with other residents to plan activities? Good technical skills for surveying and map reading? There are a variety of jobs needing enthusiastic people who can support the group’s activities.

Or are you a local business who wants to get your staff out on a volunteering day? Then talk to us about signing up to one of the mid-week tree care sessions. A fun team bonding experience out of the office!
