Press call at DEFA ‘See it. Snap it. Send it’ continuing the fight against Dutch elm disease. I planted one of twelve Dutch elm disease resistant trees in the gardens at Thie Slieau Whallian, the rest of the trees are being planted by local authorities around the Island. We are very fortunate that we have only lost around 1% of our elm trees but vigilance is required to stop the situation deteriorating.
Afternoon – back to DEFA, lengthy meeting with CEO who has been away for a week, discussing Keys business on Tuesday and our full Policy and Strategy, Department meeting on Wednesday. There is certainly a lot going on.
