When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, peonies, philadelphus...

Fraxinus

Any signs of die back?

We have other ash trees that definitely have dieback. This is our largest and I’ve not looked closely but it does seem to be losing its leaves very early 😢 @joanboston

The countryside is going to look very different without them isn’t it 🙁 @charlotte

It might just be because autumn is coming. I read that the signs of autumn have been 2 months early this year.

That sounds tragic. I hope it makes it through.

Me too Laura but I think it’s unlikely. It’s estimated that the UK will lose 80% of its ash trees from ash dieback 😢 @columbiariver

Oh I hope not. In Oregon we are losing our douglas firs to swiss needle cast and root rot. I can't imagine the landscape without them. I'm sure it's the same for you with the Ash tree ☹️💚
