It was just a few months ago that we all thought Ash trees in UK would die out due to a fungal disease called Ash Dieback, but now there is hope.
A 200 year old Ash tree found in Norfolk shows ‘strong tolerance’ to the disease. There is now the possibility of using selective breeding to develop strains of disease-resistant trees.
The Ash tree in question named ‘Betty’ is untouched by Ash dieback which has already killed half the ash trees around her.
Could be great news for our woodlands.
