The Woodland Trust, which is attending today's summit on ash dieback, has unveiled a three point plan to tackle tree disease, which includes implementing a project to bring scientists and the public together to monitor the UK's trees and woods.
We are committed to tackling the growing threat of all tree pests and diseases in the UK and, by publishing this plan, we will continue to lead the fight for the future of our trees and woods.
The situation regarding ash dieback is a sad reflection of the degree of priority that has been given to the protection and safeguarding of our natural woodland resources and of the environment as a whole.
This must be immediately addressed.
