I had a pallet and a half of Glossops kindling,  well cut and well packed, and no dearer than bringing in from the Baltic.

I remember when the Tenfoot was a field with a pond in it.

 

I can also remember when we didn't bring pests and diseases into the country on imported wood/plant/soil products, or at least not as often as at present. Hopefully post-Brexit, and one of the few good things about Brexit is, we will be able to ban such imports of plants, the soil they're grown in and wood materials.

 

So what's the problem: Ash dieback imported on nursery trees had arrived long before 2012, the recent importation of oak prosesionary moth  on imported oaks spreading the pest throughout the UK, Phytophthora austrocedrae in juniper imported on nursery stock, the virulent strain of Dutch elm disease imported on logs from Canada, the importation of  asian longhorn beetles, the introduction of red band needle blight, Ips typographus, elm zig-zag sawfly, Splanchnonema platani, oriental chestnut gall wasp. I could go on. Or I could start a new list of pests and diseases knocking on the door; emerald ash borer, pine prossesionary moth, Xylella fastidiosa, beech leaf disease and so it goes on ad-nauseam.

 

When will we learn.

I’m taking that as a tacit acknowledgement of the stupidity of a free movement of goods and people policy. 

 

If thats as close as we ever get to an acknowledgement of the potential advantages of Brexit, well, that’ll do for me 😃😃😃

If your Twitter feeds, or Brexit politicians tell you to believe everything is the fault of the EU and free movement so be it.

 

But, no it's not. In part its about plant health regulations, and in part it's about human nature.

 

Whilst there will undoubtedly be benefits to Brexit they are far outweighed by the disbenefits.

In fairness the FC have inspected 2 out of the last 3 containers of logs I have had in from Lithuania,   they are looking for the long horn beetle in any softwood packing cases.  They dont set import/export policy but are doing their best.
