Description: This project aims to protect The National Trust (NT) from the increasing number of harmful plant pests and diseases that slip though official controls and threaten our gardens, plant collections and landscapes. During 2008, the National Trust (NT) with the seconded help of Dr. David Slawson, Head of Pest and Disease Identification Programme, Food and Environment Research Agency (FERA), United Kingdom (U.K.), has developed a suit of biosecurity protocols which we are now implementing at all of our 220 heritage gardens to help lessen the risk of introducing new pests and diseases to our properties. The NT, a U.K. charity formed over 100 years ago to “promote the permanent preservation for the benefit of the nation of sites of beauty and/or historic interest, forever for everyone,” now is one of the largest garden owners in the world. Although the initial driver for the project was the impact of Phytophthora ramorum and P. kernoviae on the Trust’s gardens, the lessons learned and the measures proposed will be of generic benefit across the increasing number of pests and pathogens that threaten the Trust’s gardens and landscapes.
