Scottish update and discussion event

This event is one of two to be held in Scotland on 2nd and 3rd March.  Although substantially similar, there are minor differences in the program content to suit the area.  The event will provide the opportunity for you to hear and discuss the latest information on some of the current and future pests and pathogens likely to impact on our trees and forests in Scotland. Ongoing monitoring/survey work; policy and management implications and key issues will also be discussed.

Tea, coffee and a light lunch will be provided.
