The government has finally announced a ban on importing ash trees, in a bid to stem the spread of a deadly new fungus Chalara fraxinea (C. fraxinea).

Plant health authorities have inspected newly planted trees at 1,000 sites and also destroyed 100,000 trees.  But it has already been found in 11 established woodlands in Norfolk and Suffolk, and experts claim 30% of our native woodland is at risk.

Is it too late to prevent a disaster on the scale of the ‘Dutch Elm Disease’ that spread through the UK during the 60’s and 70’s, killing more than 25 million trees and changing the British landscape forever?
