Massaria disease of plane - Practical management guidance

Recommended Posts

I think its a really well put together document that's been set out clearly

& offers a proportionate & balanced approach to what is a significant urban issue.

 

 

 

helps that there's some nice pictures & tables to look at, eh Dean :biggrin:

Hi David, is there an update on where this stands in London now? Has the problem receded or is this still an issue?

Remains a major issue from our experience. Lost a large massaria infected branch this morning that landed on and damaged a wooden fence. Gave a passing member of the public a bit of a jolt. 

The guidance documents published in 2013 are currently under review by the LTOA Massaria working party and will be updated and re-released in the next few months.

Thanks David, And within the London city itself I am assuming they have to have some pretty major buffers in place with the old plane trees that are along the streets and roads. This must be a major thing to tackle. Don't envy those that have to look after those trees. Does it affect all of the Platanus species?
