Help identify Ash tree dieback disease

Britain’s 80 million ash trees, making up 30% of our indigenous deciduous woodland, are at deadly risk from ash dieback caused by Chalara fraxinea, a virulent fungal disease that has swept across Europe.

Visit the Ashtag website to find out how to identify this disease in ash trees, to view a map of likely sightings (the closest to Manchester is in Holmfirth) and upload photos and report sightings. You can also download a free Ashtag smartphone app from this site.

The Guardian has an interactive guide about the disease.
