The three hundredth tree was adopted under our TreeWatch initiative over the Christmas period. Most adopted trees are located in the UK but there are some also in France, Italy and Spain.
Other news in TreeWatch is the successful completion of our Pear Rust survey with the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) during 2011. The data have been shared with the RHS for detailed analyses, and a full report will be made available when investigations are complete.
The horse chestnut leaf miner survey was run for the second year in 2011. Positive records, showing presence of the leaf miner, were reported for the first time in North Wales, and northern England (near Leeds). A detailed report will be published soon.
