Yep will do. I usually dry the dog off on a towel as most of the parts of south Durham which have not been concreted over are still swamp-like.

I saw that they consider the spores are airborne now seeing as its hit the forest of dean as well. I gather it has a 90% mortality rate similar to yellow fever so does that mean what is left will be resistant and we get a better stock because of it?

are we still aloud to bury prostitutes in woodland or do they have to go in the recycle bin now? it would be a shame if a fine old tradition died out due to a bit of fungi.

Woodland Trust are asking people to clean their boots off before leaving a wood to help prevent the spread of the disease affecting the Ash Trees, just get the leaves off no need for disinfectant ect. Thanks
Trees are untidy and make a mess. There are far too many messy trees.

And what about people with 4x4's? Should I wash the cars wheels between woods?

4x4 drivers need to be responsible too.

Ash trees made part of the bows of the Archers at Agincourt. They make cricket wickets too I believe and other things too

If there is a shortage of Ash trees there will be less "punishment beatings" in NI as Hurley sticks are made from Ash !! :smile:

can the wood not still be used then?

I gather foresters use it mainly for fuel though, a carpenter friend of mine used some to build a yurt for a customer

Tree hungers. The Forces have too much time on their hands, send them in to form a ring of steel around our forests. Shoot anyone who tries to enter or leave.

Won't burn if the trees are wiped out
The Govt. "action plan" (after 3 years of inaction....) is now tracing and destroy newly planted trees and those in nurseries, imported or otherwise and taking steps to limit rate of spread.

Felling and burning mature infected ash trees has been ruled out.

Not now possible to eradicate the Chalara Fraxinea fungus, so long term all hope are placed on identifying a a genetic strain of Ash that is resistant and replant over time.

And there was me clicking on the thread thinking "Oh, a cheerful, witty thread about bear molestation."

Until I saw it was in the 'serious' section and about green stuff.

Serious head on: Looking quite dire for the Ash tree it seems. They make up a shit load of the UK's tree population apparently. Not having much in the way of green, leafy bits round my area, its not had a huge effect round here yet.

Yes, just make sure that there aren't any leaves on them/in their pockets/inserted into orifices.
