Ash Dieback in Kent spreading much faster than expected

27/09/14

Trojan Tree Care managing director Jamie Saunders has recently seen a huge increase in cases of Ash Dieback (Chalara Fraxinea) in Kent, particularly in and around Sevenoaks, Bromley, Tonbridge, Bexley and Maidstone which you can read about in his latest blog post Ash Dieback in Kent spreading much faster than expected.

For homeowners and those responsible for managing land with Ash trees who may be concerned about safety implications and their lawful duty of care, further advice can be found here and here. In essence, official advice on managing the disease remains simply to report suspected cases and practically manage the structural safety of individual trees by engaging professionals to prune or remove them as necessary.
