The Landscape Institute has published a new plant health and biosecurity toolkit to help built environment professionals combat Britain’s biggest pests and diseases. 

Biosecurity is emerging as major threat to ecosystem resilience, with new regulations and guidance being developed in response to pests, pathogens and the changing climate. This toolkit has been developed in partnership with the Society of Garden Designers (SGD), the British Association of Landscape Industries (BALI) and the Association of Professional Landscapers (APL) and represents a significant development in cross-industry coordination.

 The purpose of the toolkit is to identify best practice across the sector, and embed agreed systematic biosecurity protocols into every stage of a landscape project in a way that has never before been achieved.


You can find out more about the toolkit and access the resource via the Landscape Institute's website
