Please look out for signs of this didease when walking in the countryside. It only affects ash trees, and the signs of the disease include dead branches, the blackening of leaves which often hang on the tree and discoloured stems which appear in a diamond shape where a leaf was attached.
Please check the symptoms on the Forestry Commission's website,www.forestry.gov.uk and report the location to the helpline, 08459 335577.
Please help to stop the disease spreading by cleaning mud and leaves from footwear, pushchairs, bikes, cars, dogs and horses after visiting the countryside, and by not removing leaves plants or wood from any area.
