  1. ! ! No more Quercus imports from the Netherlands, Belgium or Germany…..press release Friday 12th July 2019 from DEFRA.!! Tighter restrictions on oak tree imports to come into force. Strengthened measures on the import of most species of oak into England are to be introduced to protect native trees from the threat of the tree disease Oak Processionary Moth (OPM). The bolstered measures will only permit imports of certain oak trees, including:- · Those from OPM free countries. · Those from designated pest free areas including Protected Zones (PZ) - an area of the European Union declared free of OPM. · Those that have been grown under complete physical protection for their lifetime. This Statutory Instrument (SI) – which is due to be introduced in Parliament shortly– builds on measures introduced in August 2018 and applies to all oak trees, except cork oak, over a certain size. The restrictions will cover both imports from overseas and the movement of trees from areas of the country where OPM is already present – in London and surrounding counties. At the Barcham Trees nursery in Cambridgeshire, UK, we have been enforcing a strict Biosecurity Policy for a number of years. Our trees are supplied free of OPM. Visit www.barchampro.co.uk
  2. 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

  4. From Horticulture week: Brown-tail Moth alert aims to protect people and trees Friday, 13 May 2011 Be the first to comment Brown-tail moths emerging from a hedge have triggered a health warning to staff in a nearby office. Pest controllers warned people to be on the lookout for the moth, which can cause breathing problems, especially in asthma sufferers. Cleankill Pest Control was called after the moths were seen in offices in Portsmouth, echoing similar incidents in Croydon and Exeter. A pesticide barrier was used to stop the bugs crawling into the buildings or colonising other hedges and trees for the emerging moths to devour leaves. Cleankill managing director Paul Bates said: "We are getting more calls this year. We believe the unusually warm spring has contributed to the moths spreading. As well as a health hazard, they will strip a tree of foliage." Officials are dealing with outbreaks in five west London boroughs - Brent, Ealing, Hammersmith, Hounslow and Richmond - and in Pangbourne, West Berkshire. The caterpillar of the brown-tail moth is brown, has a dotted white line down each side and two distinctive red dots on the back of its tail It is a voracious eater of vegetation, especially in spring, and although it prefers hawthorn and blackberry, it will eat practically any type of tree or bush.
