Forestry Commission Scotland have launched a new campaign to try and reduce the spread of disease in woodland.

The 'Keep it Clean' campaign aims to encourage people to arrive at woodlands with clean boots, tyres and kit, such as tools or walking poles, in order to help slow the spread of tree pests and diseases.The campaign offers landowners and managers different free-to-download versions of a graphic, as well as a short free-to-use promotional film, to promote the Keep It Clean message.

You can find out more about the campaign here.
