The ash dieback hub page on GOV.UK. is now live.
The page gives an overview of FC/GOV advice on ash dieback disease and management and signposts to key sources of guidance, including from FC, Tree Council, FISA, NTSG, AA, FR and NE. It has been kept succinct to avoid replication of other sources and should function as an ideal landing page for anyone enquiring about ash dieback.
The page address is: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/managing-ash-dieback-in-england
The Living Ash Project aims to identify a large and diverse number of ash trees with good tolerance to ash dieback.
