Ash dieback

Oh dear, oh dear, the tree specialists have just come round. At Easter, we thought that our ash trees – the majority of the trees which give character to our garden – had got ash dieback. Indeed, they have. One takes them for granted, until one discovers that they’re diseased, with an unpredictable lifespan and the need to clear them over time.

I’m posting a picture of the best of them in memoriam:-

One thought on “Ash dieback

  1. Sadly this is happening to many ash trees. They are the third most numerous tree in Britain and we need to hold onto them. Their wood is beautiful, with straight and true grain.
