United-KingdomUnited Kingdom

After obtaining EU authorisation for use in the Central Zone at the beginning of 2016, the permit for the United Kingdom was issued. In 2016, the first elms in the United Kingdom have been injected to protect them from being infected with Dutch Elm Disease.

The fact that elms are still ‘alive’ in the United Kingdom is thanks to the efforts of many volunteers involved in combating Dutch Elm Disease. Elms hold great scenic and cultural value in the landscape for anyone living in their vicinity and are important habitats for many rare British species including the White-letter Hairstreak butterfly.
