Ash Dieback Disease

19th October 2017

Our native Ash Trees are facing total eradication from a double threat of the air born Ash dieback disease (Chalara) and also from the Asian Longhorn beetle. Across the UK 126 million trees in British woods at risk of ash dieback.

I last met with the Woodland Trust about six months ago and was keen to have another update with them observing diseased trees first hand in Gressenhall, which we visited last week.  I saw how the spread of the disease is accelerating and heard how the Woodland Trust are advocating a diverse replanting scheme to help maintain bio diversity and prevent soil erosion.
