Introduction

Phytophthora ramorum and Phytophthora kernoviae are fungus-like plant pathogens which attack a wide range of trees and shrubs and have the potential to cause significant damage in gardens, woodlands and heathland. This paper sets out the history of these diseases in Scotland, the current situation and the actions being taken to control them.

This paper is an updated version of the status report on the two organisms issued by the Scottish Government in summer 2010.
