Our long-term national strategy to tackle tree and plant disease is based on science, international best practice and advice of the UK Chief Plant Health Officer. We have also invested more than any other country in research on Ash Dieback and are conducting the world’s largest screening trials to identify a disease-tolerant tree.</p><p>We are promoting biosecurity internationally, at UK borders, and inland targeted inspections at the border to intercept high risk trades.</p><p>There are regulations on importing plants and products from outside the UK where it is known that certain pests or pathogens are present. These are updated regularly, in response to new evidence. We are working collaboratively with the international community, industry, NGOs, landowners and the public to reduce the risks of pests and diseases entering the country, and mitigate the impact of newly established pests.</p><p>Our approach to tackling plant and tree pests and diseases also includes:</p><ul><li>Identifying and assessing new threats using the UK Plant Health Risk Register; and</li><li>Targeted import inspections at ports and airports combined with inland surveillance.</li></ul><p>The Forestry Commission provides advice to woodland managers about how best to manage and adapt to tree pests and diseases.
