The Open Elm Project is a collaboration between Red Robot Studios and Isle of Man Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture to create a detailed, public-powered record of the Islands’s elm trees to help monitor and control Dutch Elm Disease.
You don’t have to be a expert to take part – just follow the simple tips on how to identify an elm tree, and you can help make a huge difference to save our Island’s elm population.
Between 1968 and 1988 England lost 75% of its elms, and even though Dutch Elm Disease has reached the Isle of Man, effective control has meant that we have lost less than 1% of our elms. However, we need your help to ensure it stays under control.
