Who we are​​

We are forest “doctors” a researcher team who can make an impact through world-class research and bring major benefits to the natural landscape wellbeing.

We build knowledge, understanding and strong links between citizens and scientists on working together in order to protect our natural landscapes.

what we do

Our lab at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Alnarp, Sweden, studies the biology, ecology and epidemiology of endemic and exotic invasive forest pathogens.

Our research has a strong stakeholder focus for managing forest diseases in order to ensure multiple ecosystem benefits from forests and protect biodiversity associated with threatened tree species.

About the project

This citizen science project provides a rare opportunity for the public to participate in real-world scientific research.

Participants help to advance our understanding of forest Phytophthora diseases, which will help us to protect forests and the species that depend on them.
