By working together with organisations that recognise the importance and implications of tree health, we can boost the work of local teams by bringing our knowledge to the table. If you would like to discuss whether a potential collaboration with your organisation would be mutually beneficial please contact us.

English Heritage

Observatree has teamed up with English Heritage to offer volunteers access to 380 new locations that can be surveyed for signs of tree pests and diseases. This opens up thousands of trees that can be monitored to help understand more about tree health.

Christopher Weddell, Senior Gardens Advisor, English Heritage said: “We care for very special gardens and landscapes, many of which have notable historic trees.  Having Observatree volunteers working with us to spot early warning signs of significant tree pests and diseases on or around our sites will help enormously with their future wellbeing.”

Scottish Natural Heritage

To expand areas in Scotland surveyed by Observatree volunteers, we’ve joined together with Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) to access trees in suitable National Nature Reserves and Protected Areas. 

Observatree volunteers can liaise with SNH staff to survey and monitor trees on these sites.

Our pest and disease information is also being promoted, raising awareness of the importance of tree health.

Jenny Park, Invasive Non-Native Species Officer said: “Novel pests and diseases pose a significant and long-term threat to biodiversity and the health of our ecosystems.  SNH is delighted to support Observatree volunteers in undertaking tree health surveys on some of our most important wildlife sites, and to help promote awareness of tree health in Scotland.”
