Dieback of pedunculate oak (Quercus robur) Categories: Impact publication Document - Information Note    Size: 5.72 MB   display document
A wide ranging European research programme into oak dieback has been initiated from which, it is hoped, new insights into the problem will be gained.

The Assessment of Site Characteristics as Part of a Management Strategy to Reduce Damage by Hylobius Categories: Impact publication Document - Information Note    Size: 145.45 KB   display document
The severity of Hylobius damage to forest transplants is influenced by both plant and site factors. These have to be considered in order to determine the likely risk to the crop. A structured evaluation of the site to be restocked should enable forest managers to target treatments and to select the most cost-effective strategy to reduce plant damage and to protect the environment and operators.
