This is an interim strategy pending development of an integrated approach to both tree and wider plant health across government. 

Timing and direction will be influenced by EU negotiations on a new plant health regime. In the meantime, we have drafted a strategy under the guidance of the GB and Northern Ireland Tree Health Advisory Board, which provides necessary direction for activities.
