General Comments

Regulated fungal pathogen of conifers with Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) and grand fir (Abies grandis), both grown in the UK for forestry purposes, being particularly susceptible. Regulation helps to mitigate risk of introduction, but should be reviewed to consider the need for specific import requirements for conifer wood.
