Ash Die Back – Update

We have been asked about the situation regarding Ash Die back, and for now there is little news. This time of year, without foliage, it is impossible to identify or check for disease. There has been only one case in Jersey so far, amongst a batch of imported trees, and no cases on established trees. Come May or June when the trees are in leaf everyone will be on the look out for signs of disease.

This is an interesting, though worrying, map of the disease’s march across the continent;
