Ash dieback disease. This ash tree disease is caused by the fungus Chalara fraxinea, also known as Hymenoscyphus pseudoalbidus in its fruiting stage. It causes necrosis (tissue death) in the tree's stems, causing dieback of the leaves and shoots. Here, in an area where the bark has cracked, samples have been taken (cut areas) in an effort to ascertain the presence or absence of the disease. This disease can be lethal, especially in young trees. This fungus was first found in the UK in 2012, and it is feared that it may infect millions of ash trees in the UK.
