Watch out for Ash die-back..

We are of course alarmed and concerned to hear for the arrival of thsi fungal disease of ash trees. So far it has only been spotted in isolated cases on the East coast of the UK, but it can spread and we are advised to look out for it.

It is entering the UK from mainland Europe and has already killed up to 90% of Ash trees in countries such as Denmark.Whether that 10& survival implies genetic resistance remains to be seen. We will sorely miss the Ash tree were it to go the way of the Elm.
