One month to tree survey launch

There is just one month until the launch of OPAL’s seventh survey focusing on the health of our trees.

The survey, designed in collaboration with Forest Research and FERA, will help people across the UK learn more about the trees around them.

WoodlandIt will also ask you to keep your eyes peeled for a range of pests and diseases that can threaten the health of some of our native tree species.

As indicated in Defra’s Chalara Management Plan – published last month – this will include Ash Dieback.

There’s still time to register for your survey pack and be among the first to help scientists monitor the health of our trees, forests and woodland.

This week also saw the opening of the tenth session of the United Nations Forum on Forests which aims to promote the management, conservation and sustainable development of forests around the world.
