Disease outbreak on Lickeys

Posted on November 28 2016 at 10:39:40

The Lickeys have been hit by a new outbreak of the fungal disease phytophthora that could devastate the country park if left unchecked.

It has been found in all of the bilberry areas and also in a number of sweet chestnut trees.

Visitors are being urged to help prevent it spreading by sticking to marked paths and cleaning footwear, dogs’ paws and bicycle tyres after each visit.
