We need your help!

Our trees our under increasing threats from pests and diseases. Play your part in securing a healthy future for our trees. Adopt a tree, take part in a survey and help spread the word.

Adopt an Ash

Adopt an Ash in readiness for a major survey on Chalara fraxinea (ash dieback) to be launched in Spring 2013.

Data will be shared with a consortium of forestry and horticultural experts. Help find 'resistant' ash trees across Britain.

Oak Jewel Beetle

We want volunteers to help record the presence or absence of Oak Jewel Beetle on oak trees, indicated by 'D'-shaped holes in their bark.

Data will be shared with scientists at Forest Research.

Oak Powdery Mildew

We are asking volunteers to record the presence or absence of powdery mildew on oak trees this Spring and Summer. Simply 'adopt' an oak tree, or several if you like, and if you can visit them once a month to look at their leaves.

Pear Rust

Volunteers are wanted to help record the development and distribution of Pear Rust in a survey run jointly with the Royal Horticultural Society.

Horse Chestnut Leaf Miner

Volunteers are wanted to help record the presence or absence of this pest on horse chestnut trees across Europe.

Our survey started in 2010.
