Ash dieback disease
« on: November 22, 2012, 11:01:58 PM »
Reading the BBC local news it has been confirmed that Ash dieback disease has been discovered in Worcestershire

I've read the Wildlife survey for Cherry Orchard Nature Reserve and noticed that there are a few Ash trees growing there.

Are they showing any signs of this disease?

The City Council's Tree Protection Officer has produced a helpful leaflet on this.

There are pictures of what diseased trees look like at www.forestry.gov.uk/chalara and www.Ashtag.org
If any possible problems are seen the Tree Protection Officer can be contacted on 01905 722500 or email geoff.poole@worcester.gov.uk

Thank you for the 'how to identify the disease and contact information' Cllr. Denham, it's very much appreciated.

Hopefully, now that people who use the Cherry Orchard Nature Reserve on a regular basis will have the contact numbers to spot Ash dieback disease and who to contact if they do spot any symptom's.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the reserve will be left unscathed. :-\
