2nd April 2021: Highway Tree Planting
Some Tree Warden groups have hit upon obstacles concerning their highway tree planting under the 'Surrey's New Tree
Strategy' 2020 guidelines. If you haven't seen the guidelines yet you can view the document at
Highway planting is detailed from page 38. A meeting has taken place with the SCC Highways Manager to discuss the problems that have arisen, and a written response is expected. This is clearly a big issue for many Tree Wardens, and one that the Surrey Tree Warden Committee will follow up.

23rd December 2020: Chris Pead
Chris Pead, our well-respected friend, advisor, and long-time Secretary for the Surrey Tree Warden Network has recently taken the decision to resign from the group. His support over the years has been invaluable to its development and promotion.
Before working for Spelthorne Borough Council as Tree Officer, Chris trained at Kew and the knowledge he gained served us well over the years in our efforts to promote the importance of trees in our environment. Around the year 1999 he became very active in the formation of the local Spelthorne Group, sharing his knowledge, giving his advice, and gaining permission to plant trees. He was also heavily involved in the planning of Spelthorne’s Millennium Wood. His knowledge of trees is matched by his extensive knowledge of the wild and rare flowers of Surrey.
On his retirement from work Chris moved to Bexhill and still showed real commitment managing to attend the vast majority of meetings and training days whatever the weather.
We send our heartfelt thanks to Chris for his hard work and advice over the years. We are sure his love of trees will remain, and he will continue to gain satisfaction from knowing how much he has helped the cause in Surrey.
The picture opposite shows one of six black poplar planted by Chris and the Spelthorne Tree Wardens at the Millennium Wood, Shepperton in 2000.
