Martin Hales is Fownhope's Tree Warden - a voluntary service which he has been performing for some years. In the village and surrounding countryside he has been offering his help to landowners on issues involving trees and woodlands.
Nationally there is a network of Tree Wardens, organised and supported by the Tree Council.
In Fownhope the most regular requests involve helping the Parish Council respond to applications to undertake work on trees within the local Conservation Area. See web links at the end of this page for application forms to do tree work, and the map of the village Conservation Area.
Help can be given to landowners prior to applications to work on trees, with guidance on suitable arboricultural techniques and local practitioners used to carrying out this kind of work.
