Ash Dieback Disease: Chalara Fraxinea

Numerous media articles have reported on this disease and in light of this Bath and North East Somerset Council is keen to ensure that our residents have the facts and know who to contact if necessary.

So far, no trees have been identified within this district but we are reliant on our residents remaining vigilant.

The Forestry Commission has produced a Pest Alert sheet which is illustrated with symptoms and further information which is being regularly updated at: Forestry Commission - Pests and diseases - Ash dieback (Chalara fraxinea)

The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs has produced a leaflet of the current scientific facts (see Documents section on the right).


If you find a tree which you think is infected please report these to one of the following:

Forest Research Disease Diagnostic Advisory Service

Forestry Commission Plant Health Service

Fera ( Food and Environment Research Agency ) Plant Health and Seeds Inspectorate
