Tree health resilience strategy 2018

This strategy explains how the government will work with others to protect England’s tree population from pest and disease threats.



This strategy sets out plans to reduce the risk of pest and disease threats. It also sets out how we will strengthen the resilience of our trees to withstand threats.

This strategy includes a National Action Plan. The plan sets out what we’re already doing and what we and others will need to do to protect our trees and the important services they provide.

In “our goals”, we’ve summarised what we hope to achieve over the next 5 years.
