golden ash tree

I planted this, fraxinus exc jaspidea, a couple of months ago. Just in the last few days the lowest leaves and nearest the trunk have turned yellow and are drooping, they don't pull off easily. The soil is damp under the mulch matting so I don't think its just missing the rain. I haven't had much luck googling ash die back. Any advice please?

    We have two mature ashtrees in our garden, and love them - our fingers are very crossed - we're right in the middle of the worst affected area image

    Gardening is cheaper than therapy, and you get tomatoes.

    I've just had a look at the video and been out to look at a young ash that died back last year. Everything was right for ash die back except for those diamond shaped lesions. It hasn't got any

    It's not completely dead, it's shooting from the bottom. I might coppice it and see what happens.
