£5500 raised for oak disease research

Ride for ResearchMy 32 mile cycling adventure through London in March with 22 other Ride for Research riders, in aid of raising funds to support research into acute oak decline disease, accumulated a total of £5,500.  A cheque was presented recently to scientists from Forest Research.

Russell Ball’s personal account of organising the event and taking part was published recently in the London Tree Officer Association website.

  1. Gabriel – that’s great – where should we go from here ? Disease is the now by far the biggest threat to trees & forestry – perhaps the forestry organisations should get together to appeal for funding to support & match the resources that should and must come from government ?
