**IMPORTANT** Larch disease Phytophthora ramorum poses a potentially significant threat to trees in the AONB. After walking or mountain biking in woods you can help prevent the potential spread of disease by washing mud from boots and bike tyres and shaking pine needles off clothing. See the Forestry Commission website for more details on biosecurity precautions.
