It's worth noting that the AA's emerging Biosecurity Protocol guidance 
document is mentioned on p40. The fact is that biosecurity has so many 
stakeholders, and actually I'm not sure that the AA should be such a major 
stakeholder when compared to the nursery and forestry sectors for example. 
Yes the AA should be involved to some extent, and they are, but not 
necessarily at the forefront. It is importation and lack of 
phytosanitary/sanitary control that is the primary cause of novel pest and 
disease getting here after all. Once here there is a part to play in terms of 
providing guidance for resilience and advice to operatives re movement of 
material and sanitisation of tools, and that is what the AA is doing.

Morning all.

On following the link provided by John, I see that:

"As part of this approach, a new senior cross-industry Plant Health Alliance 
to strengthen biosecurity practices across industry has been established. The 
Alliance brings together the country’s leading nurseries, retailers, tree 
suppliers, landscapers, foresters, the RHS and Defra to ensure an effective 
response to threats such as Xylella and Emerald Ash Borer".

No mention of the Arb Association? Admitedly I have been out of Blighty for 
some years now, but has The ICF become the lead body in such matters, surely 
the AA has a valuable part to play when it comes to advising and monitoring 
pests and diseases and tree health in the UK.
