Ash Trees Dieback disease

  Chalara dieback of ash - browning of ash leaf tip caused by Chalara fraxinea fungus

The Foresty Commission has issued a warning about a fungal disease
that has reached our shores from the continent. A report on the Today programme this morning said that only trees in Norfolk were infected.
The link above gives more details and help with identifying diseased trees. It also gives contact details  of organisations that should be contacted if you are concerned about any  ash trees that are dying back.

The woodland is beginning to look very colourful as autumn approaches. It has been a good season for berries in the hedgerow and on the trees. Fungi are started to pop up along the rides and most of the flowers have died down and are displaying pretty seedheads.
