General Comments

Recognised threat to a wide range of deciduous trees native to the UK. Single outbreak in the UK confirmed (in 2019) as eradicated. Already regulated, it is a priority for continued surveillance and statutory action. The risk of entry is further mitigated by legislation requiring the monitoring of wooden packaging material originating from China.
