Ash Dieback-Chalara fraxinus

sudden Dieback of ash is a serious disease of ash trees caused by a fungus called Chalara fraxinea (C. fraxinea), including its sexual stage, Hymenoscyphus pseudoalbidus (H. pseudoalbidus).
The disease causes leaf loss and crown dieback in affected trees, and usually leads to tree death.
There are some estimated 80,000,000 individual Ash trees in the Uk tree stock, forming a hug part of the Uk tree coverage Large amenity specimens to the woodlands and road side trees.

Trading standards officers and Professional Arborists are aware that some rogue tree surgeons are using the disease as an opportunity to prey on the unsuspecting puplic, recent cases of the disease in the South East prompted rogue traders to knock on doors and offer to chop down trees they claim have the disease. In December alone, there were only 35 confirmed cases of the fungal disease in Kent. The cold callers say the trees need to be felled, but private owners have no obligation to take action if indeed the tree is diseased.

the Forestry commissions have own video on how to best undertake self identification of Chalara ,if you are in any doubt please contact a company Like Oakdale Ne Ltd or another professional arboricultural company, if in any doubt do research on the company on the internet and ask for details of their qualifications, before asking for a visit to view your trees https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O8GmzYjWaAc
