We are unable to conduct site visits to inspect trees for the presence of this disease. If you wish confirmation of the disease, then you should consult a competent tree advisor.
Applications for works to protected trees resulting from this disease will be treated on their merits. Infection with the disease is not necessarily a reason for felling an Ash tree.
