Phytophthora austrocedrae

(To test)

A new arrival first confirmed in juniper bushes at the Upper Teesdale National Nature Reserve (NNR) in the North Pennines in 2011 and in single specimens of Lawson and Nootka cypress trees at two sites in Scotland. In 2012 it was confirmed in juniper plants in Cumbria in North-West England, at Glen Artney in Perthshire, Scotland and in a nursery and a private garden in Devon in South-West England. Other juniper sites showing possible symptoms are being investigated in South-East England.
