There are cases of ash dieback in Cornwall, Devon, and Dorset, but trees in a Somerset plantation have survived having it for far longer than it was thought possible - up to 11 years, Bob Cruwys reports.
Trees in a Somerset plantation have survived ash dieback for far longer than previously thought possible - 11 years.
It is thought that there may be potential to slow the spread of the disease in the British countryside.
According to the National Trust said only 10% of the 6,000 ash trees at the Holnicote plantation, near Minehead, are showing any signs of the disease, despite having been infected for five years longer than any other tree in the UK so far.
