Andrew Bowman-Shaw attended the Arboricultural Asociation’s Annual Amenity Arb Conference

Andrew Bowman-Shaw attended the Arboricultural Asociation’s Annual Amenity Arb Conference this week.    A good conference with more people there than last year.  A good range of talks. 

A major theme was the increasing bio-security threats that our trees and woodland are facing from abroad.  This is an important issue which needs to be brought to the attention of the public and the media at large.  Good to see that ‘The One Show’ featured a piece about the threat to our much loved horse chestnut trees from  the leaf miner ( Cameraria ohridella).  This is just one of the pests and diseases challenging our trees at present.  The threat from pests and diseases coming in from abroad is on the rise.  Action is needed.
