Owen Thurgate, Phytophthora Project Manager at Forestry Commission Wales, said, "The worst case scenario would have been to have found the same number, or even more, trees infected by ramorum disease this year as last year.
"Last year, we found that the dry autumn helped to reduce the spread of the spores that cause ramorum disease," said Owen.
"We are determined to minimise the impacts of ramorum disease on woodlands and the forest industry, and the support of woodland owners in looking out for early signs of infection will continue to play a key role in our disease management strategy," said Owen.
Ramorum disease is not harmful to humans or animals, and all public woodlands remain open to visitors, except in areas where felling operations are taking place, which are temporarily closed for safety reasons.
Owen said, "We are appealing to everyone who works in or visits the affected forests to help us contain this outbreak by observing some biosecurity precautions so that the pathogen is not inadvertently spread on boots, bicycle or vehicle wheels, tools or machinery.
