We have launched a new survey under our TreeWatch initiative in collaboration with the Royal Horticultural Society.
We are asking volunteers to help by adopting a Pear tree Pyrus communis and observing it regularly for the European Pear Rust Gymnosporangium sabinae.
The new survey has been added to our new look TreeWatch website, which was relaunched last week. The survey will be promoted by the RHS to their members. Sylva and the RHS will be working closely together to analyse the data.
If you have a pear tree in your garden or nearby park, why not adopt it on TreeWatch and take part in the survey.
