The UK Tree Health Citizen Science Network (THCSN) has been formed from a group of individuals and organisations working across a range of projects and activities that engage people with trees.
The aim of the network is for all key organisations and individuals with an interest in tree health and citizen science to:
- work collaboratively to share information, news, experiences and best practice
- pursue opportunities for joint working and funding
- act as ambassadors both nationally and internationally
- provide counsel and advice to policy-makers
The network aims to improve how tree health citizen science opportunities are presented and marketed to the public. We want to make it easier for people to easily understand what projects are available and which opportunities are most appropriate for them.

The next meeting of the Network will be held at 10:00-14:00 GMT on Wednesday 9 February 2022, via MS Teams. More information will be circulated to members nearer the date.
Forest Research plays a key role on the Network through membership and by hosting the Network’s webpage. The first Coordinator of the Network is David Slawson (OPAL Imperial college London).
If you are actively involved with developing or running tree health citizen science and would like to join the network please contact us.
