Statement on Ash dieback outbreak

Ian Wright, Plant Health Adviser at the National Trust, which manages some 25,000 hectares of woodland and forest, said: “We’re extremely worried about the potential risk caused by the current outbreak of Ash dieback.

“As a precautionary measure we’ve advised all our gardens teams to not order ash trees and to check any ash planted since 2009 for signs of the disease.

“We will continue to liaise with the Forestry Commission, DARD and FERA for the latest information on this worrying outbreak.”
