Foliar analysis service - Dispatching samples

Despatching samples

All foliage samples should be immediately sent by first class post to:

Environmental Research Laboratory
Forestry Research
Alice Holt Lodge
Surrey GU10 4LH

The outside of the parcel should:

  • Be marked "PLANT MATERIAL - URGENT" and
  • Have the sender's address and a daytime telephone number clearly visible.

On receipt by us

After the samples have been received and entered into laboratory filing system a receipt will be sent out. The receipt will consist of a list of samples together with their laboratory reference code numbers - which then can be quoted in future correspondence.

If there are errors in the list of samples on the receipt they should be queried immediately.
