Ash Dieback

Ash dieback is a particular concern at the moment. Ash dieback (Hymenoscyphus fraxineus) is a fungus which originated in Asia but is currently sweeping the UK. It’s most prominent in the South East at the moment but is rapidly spreading throughout the country. It’s thought it will kill around 80% – 95% of ash trees across the UK.

Ash dieback affects ash trees of any age. These are some of the symptoms to look out for:

  • Leaves developing dark patches in the summer
  • Before wilting and turning black
  • Dieback visible in summer
  • Dark brown, diamond shaped lesions appear on the trunk and branches
  • Bark looks browny grey under the lesions

Once Ash dieback reaches an advanced stage the tree becomes unsafe to climb. Thankfully our Merlo Roto allows us to safely dismantle for tree from the ground.

“Quick to respond with a quote, easy to communicate with. I wasn’t present on site but the photo I was sent shows a thorough and tidy job and it was to my satisfaction. They felled the trees in a most professional manner, cutting up the trunks into manageable logs for me. The team were found to be reliable, punctual and hard working. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them and have already asked to quote for further work.”
