We will identify relevant stakeholder groups and their needs regarding urban tree biosecurity. We will also collect and analyse data related to the traits of urban tree species and genotypes, and about management practices that may increase/reduce their vulnerability to pests.

Our goal is to inform policy about research on threats and biosecurity in urban forestry. We will identify obstacles to the implementation of relevant EU policies, suggest measures to improve policy implementation, and ensure the coherence between the suggested best practices and regulatory framework.
