Climate change – and tree pests, more money for research Categories: Press Release    Size: 197 KB   display document
Forest Research in Wales, together with its partners from Swansea University and the National University of Ireland, Maynooth, has won new funding for its IMPACT project, which is assessing just how changing climate will influence the damage caused to trees and forests by pests and pathogens, some already here and others potentially brought here through international trade. The team will now be investigating what impact Ips cembrae, the larch bark beetle, may have in the wake of phytophthora outbreaks across Wales. The work also includes developing strategies to prevent the spread of pests from Wales to Ireland and a management system for the natural control of pine weevil, Hylobius. The extended project which is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) through the Ireland Wales Programme (INTERREG 4A), with match funding for Forest Research from NRW and Forestry Commission, runs through to June 2015.12/06/14
