Are You Concerned about Chalara Dieback of Ash in Bristol?
You may have heard in the news about a destructive fungus called Chalara Fraxinea which is unfortunately killing ash trees across Britain.
It is thought the fungus was imported from a nursery in the Neverlands and now the UK Government has responded by considering legislation to ban the movement of ash trees from areas where the Chalara dieback disease has been suspected.
The Forestry Commission has more information about Chalara dieback of ash here.
To date, there has not been any confirmed cases of chalara dieback in the Bristol area, but if you are concerned about an ash tree, then please do not hesitate to contact a professional for advice, as suspected cases should be reported to help avoid further spread of this unpleasant disease.
