I hope this doesn't spread. as for people saying more work when DED took hold, loads of people jumped on the bandwagon (as they do) and probably many of those are still going today but when the Ash trees are all down then what, the industry would be even more swamped then it is now. Think long term- this disease isn't going to benefit anyone.

This IS going to spread like wild fire

 

it wont benifit anyone in the long haul

 

The loss will be more than just trees, the ash veteranises easily and is one of the few tree species still providing roosting sites for bats owls etc in any great numbers. The ash is one of our most vital ecological niches, this loss is going to be appalling.

Cant beleive over 100,000 trees have been destroyed already. That was kept quiet!

 

Like Hama, my concern is over the wide-spread ecological impact that the removal of ash trees would have, beyond the trees themselves. They are a part of food chains and habitats. Even consider that they will eventually be replaced by species which will probably be more shading, entire woodland ecosystems will be changed! The next few years are going to be a bit mental.
