National Action Plan Workshops for Timber and Tree Pests

February 28, 2023

PHA is delivering a series of workshops starting in Perth on 22 February 2023 to help develop a National Action Plan for Pests of Timber and Trees.

The first tranche of workshops will be delivered at multiple locations around Australia to discuss key issues and identify specific actions to address pests of timber and trees. Dates and times for these workshops are below:

  • Perth: 22 February 2023, 9:00am-1:00pm
  • Northern Territory (virtual workshop): 2 March 2023, 9:00am-1:00pm
  • Sydney: 15 March 2023, 9:00am-1:00pm
  • Melbourne: 16 March 2023, 9:00am-1:00pm
  • Brisbane: 17 March 2023, 9:00am-1:00pm
  • Adelaide: 21 March 2023, 9:00am-1:00pm
  • Hobart: 22 March 2023, 9:00am-1:00pm
  • Canberra: 28 March 2023, 9:00am-1:00pm

Two national workshops will also be held later this year to refine key aspects of the draft plan and its associated implementation schedule. Information on the date and location for these workshops will be provided to stakeholders as they become available.

Once completed, the plan will describe the priority areas for a national approach for prevention, detection, response and cross-cutting issues related to exotic pests threatening Australian timber and trees.
