This paper sets out the history of these diseases in Scotland, the current situation and the actions being taken to control them.

5. Cooperation between partners

Actions on P. ramorum are coordinated by a Scottish Phytophthora Steering Group with membership drawn from Agriculture Food and Rural Communities Directorate (policy, inspectorate and science), the Forestry Commission, Forestry Commission Scotland, Scottish Natural Heritage and SEPA. The Scottish Tree Health Advisory Group (which provides advice to Forestry Commission Scotland on tree health matters) provides an additional forum for discussing actions relating to P. ramorum and draws on the experience of representatives from across the forestry, land use, environmental and public sectors.
