❍ Be vig­i­lant: know what the threats are and re­port sight­ings to the Forestry Com­mis­sion via its on­line Tree Alert por­tal

❍ Be clean: en­sure your cloth­ing, tools, equip­ment and ve­hi­cles are clean to avoid spread­ing pests and dis­eases; and re­sist the urge to bring for­eign plants and plant ma­te­ri­als back from your trav­els in case they are in­fected

❍ Be re­spon­si­ble: in­sist that the nurs­eries you buy your plants and trees from have strin­gent biose­cu­rity con­trol mea­sures in place
