Download and Read: Guides

Follow the links to read or download training materials on our priority pests and diseases. New items will be added as soon as they are available. Please contact us if there is any information you are particularly looking for.

Observatree is pleased to announce that we are trialling the sale of hard copies of our popular pest and disease Identification Guides. We have printed a small number of each and we are working with Treesource who will distribute them for us during this trial period. If this pilot proves successful, we may consider exploring options for a wider distribution. The hard copies are spiral-bound, printed on waterproof pages and are ideally suited for survey work in any type of weather.

The guides continue to be freely available from our website as a downloadable PDF file.

Observatree is a non-profit making partnership project. All proceeds received by the partnership from the sale of these guides will be used to cover costs and support the continued provision of our educational resources.
