Hundreds of ash trees checked for disease

First published in News by

ASH trees on Tendring Council land have been given a clean bill of health.

More than 530 trees were inspected following the spread of a deadly disease which is threatening to decimate the species.

The disease, which is caused by the chalara fraxinea fungus, results in leaf loss and crown dieback.

Chris Wood and Jamie Robertson, from Tendring Council’s Horticultural Services Team, went out to all the council’s gardens, recreation grounds and any other sites it is responsible for.

It is likely the trees will be inspected again next year.
