The Ash are very late this year, lets hope it just a sign we are in for a great summer.

 

"Oak before Ash" etc.

I wish I could share your optimism ( I do for the great summer but not the late ash☹️), they've been greening up later and thinning in the crowns year on year, we did a coppice block of mainly hornbeam with about 20% ash in January and ALL the ash had knackered crowns that disintegrated when they hit the deck, saved on a bit o clearing up though

The ash are generally looking weedy down here near Ashford as well Duncan.

I hope they're just flushing late.

 

 

I've never known them so late or at least so far behind the Oak.

There are a load of reasons why ash trees look unwell, but that first one in particular does look like dieback. Given that they are in Kent it's pretty much a dead cert I'm afraid.

If that's DED then you should be seeing a lot of symptomatic saplings too (in the same vicinity) and they are much easier to diagnose. Any symptoms of rapid necrosis on non-shaded, and otherwise healthy growth is a good give away.
