Further cases of the tree disease Chalara, also known as ash dieback, have been confirmed in woodland in Sussex and Berkshire. The disease has now been confirmed in 115 sites: in 15 nurseries, 39 planting sites and 61 locations in the forests and woodlands.
These instances of Chalara are being discovered as a result of a rapid and intensive surveying operation carried out over the course of last weekend and the beginning of this week.
