Prioritising biosecurity when purchasing plants and trees. Small Woods has joined forces with the Forestry Climate Change Working Group, Plant Healthy and Grown in Britain to bring you an event with a range of speakers to explain and discuss why anyone purchasing plants and trees should specify that the nursery is ‘Plant Healthy’ - this will help reduce the risk of introducing and spreading pest and disease into the environment through increase in biosecurity.
