Pests and diseases

Trees in and around Woking borough can be affected by a number of tree pests and diseases. 

These include:

Our tree officers work alongside the Forestry Commission to monitor the spread of these known ‘pathogens’ and ensure all necessary steps are taken to manage them. 

It is important to note that where possible we will aim to restore trees to a healthy and safe state. If disease or pests are detected we will not automatically remove the tree.
