This map displays the location of recently confirmed reports of OPM and the OPM management zones. This will help landowners and managers to see which management zone their land is in and to evaluate the risk to a given site or location based on up-to-date reports of OPM presence. The data are taken from the OPM Control Programme database and are regularly updated. It should be noted that while this map represents data gathered from an extensive programme of surveillance, it should not be treated as an exhaustive representation of OPM presence. To access the distribution map please visit the distribution map.
The Forestry Commission leads an annual programme of work to manage OPM, with the approach varying depending on what part of England an infested oak tree is in. To access this information please visit https://www.gov.uk/guidance/managing-oak-processionary-moth-in-england.
