Plant Health & Biosecurity

Government publishes plan for tackling tree diseases

The LI is concerned with plant health and invasive plant species. It aims to raise member awareness and understanding of these matters using a variety of means such as Technical Notes, newsletters, training events and ‘news’ items. Underpinning this work is liaison with bodies such as Defra, FERA, Tree Council and the Scottish Centre of Excellence, whom the LI also seeks to influence to take into account ‘landscape’ issues.
