Our trees are under attack

Diseases imported from Europe are attacking our trees

Ash dieback, also known as Chalara, was first confirmed in the UK in 2012. The disease is caused by a fungus called Hymenoscyphus fraxineus. Infected trees can be recognised by a loss of leaves, the crown of the tree dying and lesions on the trunk.

Removing Chestnut from River Mole

Removing a fallen tree across a river at the end of your garden is not usually at the top of the list when you obtain a new property. This, however, was a priority for a new owner of a property in Pixham, near Dorking.

It was thought that the large chestnut tree, that spanned from one side of the River Mole to the other, had lain like this for many years. Unsightly debris gathered around the trunk to be dispelled as the level of the water rose.
