With DEFRA announcing a ban on imports into the UK of Quercus from The Netherlands, Belgium and Germany, a timely reminder to source trees from a UK nursery with a Biosecurity Policy which can demonstrate an audit trail on every tree offered for sale. At Barcham Trees we have been banging this drum for years. Imports from Europe have been made available to the Landscape Industry to offer the variety demanded but these imports need to be grown on in the UK, acclimatised and quarantined before sale, to ensure any live or dormant pests and diseases are eradicated before despatch into our glorious UK landscape. At the link below is a PDF copy of our Biosecurity Policy which you can download and save to your computer for future reference. This is a useful guide to refer to from whichever nursery you source trees for planting in the UK. https://www.barchampro.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/Barcham-Biosecurity-for-web.pdf
