They've tested all mine for free, but with a view to the FC then serving 
SPHNs. 

Phone your local FC private woodland officer to report your suspect larch. It 
is then up to them to organise a site visit by FR. You'll probably get a 
better result then, as half the game is getting good samples, and some of the 
FR field workers have spent several years collecting them. FR are getting v 
good with their flow tests on site. And if they're uncertain with them on 
site then they send off their own samples for a lab test. 

You could be looking at several months round trip from reporting it to 
getting a result (and a SPHN).

Morning All,
having tried for a number of days now to speak to a person at Alice Holt 
Forest Research, and continuously getting put through to other FC offices 
around the country, I have given up and turned to the collective wisdom of 
UKTC.

Has anyone out there sent off a sample of Larch trunk to Forest Research to 
try and get a positive ID on P. ramorum definitely being present?

If so, could you advise on what you sent them, how you sent it, who you sent 
it to, how much it cost and how long the results took to come back?

I have emailed Forest Research as well, but no answer so far.

many thanks as always
Bettina
