Ash Dieback suspected in Kent

04/11/12

Suspected cases of Ash Dieback, the common name given to the fungal tree pathogen Chalara Fraxinea have reportedly been found in Kent.

The latest in a spate of recent tree diseases to hit the U.K., C. Fraxinea is being taken very seriously by the Government with over 100'000 Ash saplings incinerated so far in a bid to contain the spread of the disease.

Our blog posting here gives a wider perspective on the disease and its implications for the future. 

The Arboricultural Association has also issued a press release with important information and guidence on identification and how to report suspected cases here;
