Giant Pine Scale Update

LowerTrunkPineGiant pine scale has now been found in isolated pockets outside the original two declared restricted areas.

As a result, the two restricted areas have now been merged and expanded to the northeast.

You can help control this outbreak by:

  • reporting any white, waxy secretions you see on the trunks of pine, fir or spruce trees
  • Check your clothing, machinery and tools for signs of the pest before leaving a host tree location.
  • Do not remove any pine, fir or spruce trees or mulch from your property without first contacting DEDJTR on 1800 084 881
