Report tree pest damage online with 'TreeCheck'


Walkers often report issues they encounter along the trail. Northern Ireland Environment Agency have recently announced that concerned walkers have access to 'TreeCheck' an online tool for reporting potential pest or disease damage to plants and trees in the wider environment.

Intended for use by professionals, citizen scientists and concerned members of the public, the new platform is a joint venture between the Forest Service's Plant Health Inspection Branch and the ROI's department of Agriculture, Food and Marine.

'TreeCheck' should be used when a suspect pest or disease is observed on plants or trees in the wider environment, for example, in forests, on roadside planting, private gardens, city or park plantings.
