This field guide has been produced by the Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service (AQIS), the National Office of Animal and Plant Health (NOAPH) and the Standing Committee on Forestry (SCF) for wharf workers, container depot staff, timber handlers, timber yard workers, forest workers and forest technical staff. The guide aims to provide basic information on some high-risk exotic pests and diseases of forest and amenity trees and imported timber. The pests and diseases featured in this guide are only a few – though very important – examples of exotic forest pests and diseases that could cause damage in the Australian environment.
