 Current dieback reports 

Decline and death of high-elevation forest communities, known as snow-gum dieback, is widespread throughout the Australian Alps. Although anecdotally linked to wood-boring longicorns, the drivers of snow-gum dieback remain unknown.


Our work focusses on understanding the phenomenon, mapping its extent and expansion, and predicting and mitigating the effects of future outbreaks

Help by reporting observations of snow-gum dieback and longicorn beetles when in the mountains
