Oak Processionary Moth in England: A Toolkit for Local Authorities

The Tree Council has worked with Defra, Forestry Commission and Forest Research to produce a practical toolkit that will equip Local Authorities and others responsible for managing trees with the information and tools needed to develop local risk-based management approaches for OPM.

The toolkit has been produced with the generous input of Local Authorities and land managers at the forefront of dealing with OPM, so is an excellent resource that makes the latest expertise and on-the-ground experience available to all.

Crucially, the toolkit promotes evidence-led, risk management that balances the need to safeguard public health and wellbeing with maintaining biodiversity and protecting our precious oak trees.
