Help combat the destructive Chalara ash die back disease. This fungus causes leaf loss and can kill young ash trees in one growing season. Log onto www.ashtag.org/sightings/submit”>www.ashtag.org/sightings/submit and report on the perceived [good ] health of any ash tree in your area over the next couple of years. Reports from Denmark say about 1% of all trees are disease tolerant. Identification of tolerant trees is vital to ash survival and it can vary from area to area.
