Tree health survey packs for Scotland and Wales now available

People in Scotland and Wales are being encouraged to take part in OPAL’s seventh survey on tree health.

The survey, which launched earlier this month, is the first of OPAL’s surveys to be distributed outside England, in partnership with Natural Resources Wales and Forestry Commission Scotland.

Scottish Environment Minister Paul Wheelhouse encouraged people to take part and help scientists build a comprehensive picture of the health of our trees.

“With this initiative, communities around the UK will be exploring their local area to find and survey local trees. It only takes about half an hour to complete but the data gathered can potentially be of great assistance to the scientists and researchers who are engaging with these issues.”
