You can also find out more information about the Observatree project from FR staff or by visiting the dedicated Observatree stand (refer to site map for details). Citizen science and new technology are being combined in the fight against tree disease as part of Observatree, a new project which aims to help protect the UK’s trees, woods and forests from harmful pests and diseases – existing or new. Over the past 12 months more than 200 volunteers across the UK have been trained as part of a collaboration led by Forest Research and which includes the Forestry Commission, Defra and Natural Resources Wales, FERA, APHA, the National Trust and the Woodland Trust. Observatree is funded by the EU’s Life programme. We are encouraging tree health professionals and people actively involved with trees to act as citizen scientists and report potential sightings of tree pests and diseases. More eyes on the ground means a greater chance of earlier detection.
