General Comments

Longhorn beetle pest of China fir detected in manufactured wooden products. Main risk in UK is to botanic gardens, but little likelihood of transfer. Because China fir is not grown widely elsewhere industry may wish to be aware and review quality assurance programmes. Botanic gardens and arboretums should also be aware.
