The National Forest confirms ash dieback disease

The first case of the tree disease ash die back has been confirmed in The National Forest. The disease was found at three sites between Albert Village and Moira, in Leicestershire, near to the Derbyshire town of Swadlincote. Ash dieback was first identified in the UK last year and is now established in 14 counties around the country. Millions of trees have been planted at the forest in the last 20 years with ash accounting for about a fifth.
