Biosecurity Plan for the Tea Tree Industry Article Date: 01 Jan 2020

A Biosecurity Plan for the Tea Tree Industry has been prepared and released by Plant Health Australia.

To ensure its future viability and sustainability, it is important that the Australian tea tree industry, represented by the Australian Tea Tree Industry Association (ATTIA Ltd) as the peak industry body, minimises the risks posed by exotic pests and responds effectively to plant pest threats. This plan is a framework to coordinate biosecurity activities and investment for Australia’s tea tree industry. It provides a mechanism for industry, governments and stakeholders to better prepare for and respond to, incursions of pests that could have significant impacts on the tea tree industry. It identifies and prioritises exotic plant pests (not currently present in Australia) and established pests of biosecurity concern and focus on future biosecurity challenges.


The Biosecurity Plan for the Tea Tree Industry was developed in consultation with the Tea Tree Technical Expert Group (TEG) and Tea Tree Biosecurity Implementation Group (BIG), which consisted of plant health and biosecurity experts and industry representatives. These groups were coordinated by Plant Health Australia (PHA) and included representatives from ATTIA Ltd, relevant state and territory agriculture agencies and PHA.
