The TREEmendous Biosecurity Blitz aims to protect Western Australia’s trees from an increasing number of exotic pest and disease threats to our urban and bushland environments, and horticultural and forest industries.
Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) experts will hold workshops at Bunbury and Kings Park to describe the priority tree pests and diseases to be on alert for here in WA and demonstrate how to use the MyPestGuide Reporter app.
Whether you have trees in your backyard, in the local park or on your street, like to bushwalk, or work in forestry or horticulture, you can help protect our trees into the future by checking them for pests and diseases and reporting any you find.
This year, Biosecurity Blitz runs from 24 September to 24 October 2022 – that’s 30 days to look for, snap and send in a report of every tree pest and disease in your neighbourhood!
The annual Biosecurity Blitz is part of DPIRD’s commitment to delivering a robust biosecurity system to support our industries and protect our trees, environment and lifestyle.
