Welcome to our partnership homepage, from all the volunteer Tree Wardens and Pond Wardens in Kent! All the best for the summer of 2018!

The Kent Tree and Pond Partnership is working particularly hard all across Kent this year! The theme for the Tree Council’s Regional Forums in 2017 was “Tree Values”, reflecting how we value trees, while planning for the future in a rapidly changing country. In Kent we also SO value our ponds.
