Trees give us oxygen. They store carbon. They help the soil and provide a habitat for wildlife. For these reasons and many more, protecting them from pests and diseases is important. With tree and woodland managers, we are designing a new range of grants as part of a future Tree Health scheme. I'll share more in this post.
Joe is a policy adviser in the Tree Health team, within the Future Farming and Countryside Programme.
The team is responsible for developing grants that support land managers in dealing with tree health issues across the treescape.
