Chalara fraxinea

Chalara fraxinea

Ash Dieback Disease first appeared in the United Kingdom in February 2012. 
In an article I discovered on the BBC website today, the Woodland Trust has given a warning.  The warning is this - we may have to consider a future without Ash Trees.
The areas most at risk are Norfolk, Suffolk, Kent, East Sussex and Northumberland.

The Woodland Trust has suggested to landowners that they plant different species adjacent to dying Ash Trees so that they are replaced when they die.

A pilot scheme is being offered offering 1,000 subsidised 'disease recovery packs', each with 45 native trees.
