Forestry Commission Scotland is encouraging members of the public to continue to report possible instances of diseased trees - but has asked that people double check before phoning in a sighting.
Hugh Clayden, Tree Health policy adviser for Forestry Commission Scotland said:
"The general public is a fantastic asset for us in our efforts to manage tree diseases in Scotland. They know their local areas, which in most case will be locations where our staff rarely - or possibly never - go, and they see immediately if trees don't look right. Having those extra feet on the ground is invaluable.
