Management of OPM, Ash Dieback and Sooty bark disease in the Urban Jungle of the Netherlands
 
For this unique arboricultural journey, you won't be confined to an office; instead, you'll be outside or riding in the Safari Bus as you explore the Urban Dutch Jungle!
 
A special three-day study tour in the Netherlands, with the opportunity to experience first-hand the consequences of oak processionary moth (OPM) in the eastern region of the Netherlands and observe the outcomes of ash dieback (ADB) in the west, as well as sooty bark disease.
 
A series of field trips will take delegates to hot spots of infestation, providing numerous examples and offering practical information, demonstrating the effects of these diseases on trees, as well as insights into their management and policies.
 
Throughout the journey, Henry Kuppen will sprinkle in his knowledge of tree diseases and offer insights into the landscape's origins. We’ll also be joined by scientist, consultant and OPM expert Wendy Batenburg and Roel Geerts, an expert in Ash Dieback analysis and decision making.
 
The Explorer’s Mindset:
 
Participants do not need prior knowledge of oak processionary moth, ash dieback, or sooty bark disease to participate in this excursion. However, a professional background in arboriculture is required. Having an "explorer's mindset" and a strong interest in OPM, ADB, and SBD will enhance participants' enjoyment of the field trips. Group discussions and Q&A will be encouraged throughout.

I will be interested to hear about what is new from this tour, especially about sooty bark disease.

 

I have just learned that a house in Aldershot  is to be evacuated whilst three diseased sycamores are felled because of the danger from spores.

 

When I was working on diseased trees in the hot summer of 76 the only precautions we took was to disinfect the tools with Jeyes fluid so I wonder what the advice is now and has there been an increase of infected trees and any incidences of human health problems?
