The Control Plan outlines some additional actions including:

  • researching spore production at infected sites;
  • working closely with other European countries that have been affected by Chalara to share data and experience on  resistance to the disease;
  • funding a study to accelerate the development of the ObservaTREE, a tree health early warning system using volunteer groups; and
  • working with the horticulture and nursery sectors on long-term resilience to the impact of Chalara and other plant health threats.
