Phytophthora ramorum confirmed in the Larch trees at Rowardennan

Forest Enterprise Scotland (FES) is urging visitors to Rowardennan Forest (East Loch Lomond) to stick to paths and follow good biosecurity practice outlined in the ‘Keep it Clean’ campaign.

The call comes as the FES team in the area prepares to carry out some felling and clearance work across seven hectares of the forest to combat an outbreak of tree disease, Phytophthora ramorum.

The work will take place in woodland near the Rowardennan Hotel, and adjacent to the Ben Lomond access path.
