Biosecurity Policy 

We do not import trees nor purchase from UK nurseries that import.

This removes the direct biosecurity risk associated with importing trees, as well as the risk of purchasing UK grown trees that have been cross-contaminated by imported stock.

Our policy is in response to the growing recognition of the role of plant imports in the global spread of pests and dieseases and the recent outbreaks in the UK.

 

The following documents highlight the issues and importance of having a robust biosecurity policy:
