In the UK, the fungus responsible for ash dieback is spreading more quickly than expected according to experts, reports BBC. Millions of deseased trees near buildings, roads and railways will have to be cut down. A recent survey found infections had been confirmed across 80% of WAles, 68% of England, 32% of Northern Ireland and 20% of Scotland. (Source: BBC). The fungus infects the trunk and branches which die off as a consequence. The trees become fragile which makes a felling with a chainsaw very difficult.
