Trouble is Phillip, as far as I am aware, the powers that be can't obstruct 
the free flow trade and import of trees as members of the EEC ... EU. Best 
they can do is to implement the plant passport controls. The FC/Defra could 
possibly issue a Statutory Plant Health Notice (SPHN) restricting the 
movement of Oak though ... ... that wouldn't be popular.

In case you're not a telegraph reader. Unfortunately the last words sounds 
like someone has been hanging around railway stations: Spot it. Avoid it.
Report it.



I think "Don't buy oak trees in Holland (or Belgium or Germany) & bring them 
into the UK" might be more effective.
