I have several ash trees in the garden. They are around 20 years old but they are struggling now with the Ash die back. My location is central Wiltshire.Photo below.
Have you informed anybody in authority?

We have two large ash trees in our garden which we love. So far they look healthy
We are slap bang in the middle of a really bad area for Ash Dieback - we saw some tragically affected young growth on old ash stools at Foxley Wood last spring - we're also just a mile down the road from Dr Edwards' lab

Thank you very much pansyface and Dove. I didn't realise you had to report it. I will have a look about over the weekend and see if there are other trees suffering in the locality.
I'm dreading it reaching us. About 90% of the trees I can see from my window are ash. When (not if) it arrives the view will be of something like the steppes of Russia.
