Ash clouds ... and silver linings ...

Whilst the recent news of this potentially devastating fungal disease hits the news, this Radio 4 program by the Saving Species team discusses ash dieback and other tree diseases and our complicated relationship with tree planting in general. Whilst mostly relevant to forestry planting, it is also relevant to urban tree planting: 


As Tree Wardens we are keen to raise awareness of the value of our trees in public spaces, and are very conscious that we are planting for the future. What we plant, and where is something we are actively thinking about and discussing with Green Scene, the part of Lewisham Council charged with the management of trees and public green space.

Developments will be posted here.
