Thread: Ash dieback

  1. #1

    Ash dieback

    If the ash trees are doomed as suggested as no cure is known.
    Denmark has lost 95% of its ash trees in 10 years. Should there be a national campaign to plant another species of tree near to all ash trees before it dies to fill the space as it is dying??

    A novel idea. I like it. What species should it be?

    ASH! They have identified that 5% suvive for some reason. Plant the keys of those trees which have a natural immunity.
    It's natural evolution.

    The 5% that are showing immunity are in relation to the current fungal genotype.
    They do not yet know if this fungal genotype will mutate and as such it may be a bit early to go ahead and plant out with stock from the 5%

    Be safer to plant out with a different species all together IMHO

    I'm led to believe that a sharp cold spell like this of the minuses we are having will halt the spread.

    I have a theory,
    to stop fungus you use a sulpher wash, since they removed sulpher from road fuel, the brambles have died back, has it allowed the fungus to get a hold?

    Perhaps if the damned climate change lot had lept their mouths shut and not imported trees from warmer climes we would not be in this mess to begin with. However we know that they will never accept they they ARE the problem.
