Ash dieback is now unstoppable and could wipe out 45 native species and endanger the habitats of nearly 1,000 others, ecologists have warned.

Britain's ash trees are now 'doomed,' tree experts claim, and their demise threatens hundreds of insects, mosses, lichens and birds.

I didn't know they were dying in England... they are dying in 22 U.S. States too.  They have all died (about 12) on my 10 acres , and the neighbor's land  :(

The government stated that ordinary people are not permitted to do anything to the infected trees without consulting the authorities first.

Scientists are looking for a cure.

This is an informative short vid about the history of this tragedy....(in Britain)

Apparently the fungus to blame is a new species..

First found in Poland in the early 1990s..first found in a nursery in Britain in Feb 2012..

That came from saplings imported from continental Europe...

For heaven's sake....why the hell did anyone have to import saplings from anywhere else...???.... :td:

This country is covered in Ash Trees.....
