This manual has been prepared to help people who manage or work in forests and woods which have been affected by plant diseases caused by phytophthora organisms, especially Phytophthora ramorum and Phytophthora kernoviae.
It also has guidance for those who are involved in moving and processing wood from infected trees.
It will help them to:
comply with the plant health regulations applying to affected trees, other plants and wood; and
minimise the risk of spreading the diseases further afield through their operations.
