Two Trees Conservation Team

 

1064 Volunteer FB banner national

The Two Trees Conservation Team was set up in 2002 to meet the demand of people wanting to support the practical conservation of the New Forest.

Being a Volunteer with the Two Trees Conservation team is a fantastic way to get fit, make friends, enjoy the open air and gain valuable work experience.

What do Two Trees Conservation Volunteers do?

Two Trees Volunteers are involved in variety of different types of tasks which mainly run during autumn and winter, although we do have a smaller programme of summer tasks as well.

Events are led by experienced Volunteer Rangers who work closely with the New Forest Keepers. In autumn and winter months we carry out a full programme of conservation tasks such as clearing edges of woodland tracks to improve butterfly habitats and removal of seeding pines from the heathlands, to provide good habitat for birds such as the rare Dartford Warbler.

Summer tasks concentrate on the removal of invasive non-native plant species.

Tasks occur on both weekdays and weekends starting at 10am and generally finishing around 3pm, depending on weather. TTCT volunteers can sign up to attend as many of these events as they wish.
