Are you prepared for Chalara Ash Dieback?
Since it was formally identified in 2012, Chalara Ash Dieback has been wreaking havoc on our native ash trees, causing dieback and death with a terribly high mortality rate of up to 85%. The disease is caused by the fungal pathogen Hymenoscyphus fraxineus, formerly named Chalara fraxinea. The disease comes from small white mushrooms that develop on shed leaf stalks in autumn and then spreads via windborne spores.
