The nation's forests are open, but please read our coronavirus guidance before you visit - read our guidance.

How can you help?

Ash dieback is spread on the wind, so there is nothing we can do about it. However there are things we can all do to help stop the spread of tree pests and diseases.

  1. Clean your boots, dogs and wheels - Some tree diseases live in soil, let’s not give them a free ride.
  2. Don’t bring seed, fruit or wood products back from abroad - They may be carrying harmful pests or diseases inside.
  3. Be Vigilant - Report any trees you suspect are in ill health to Forest Research.

And finally, continue your support
