Ash Dieback

Ash Dieback

The recent arrival of the ash dieback disease is a major threat to the 10 million ash trees in Scotland.

In May we will be launching a touring exhibition that explores the impact of ash dieback on our economy, our biodiversity and our landscape. The exhibit highlights how we can learn from this experience and what you can do to protect trees in the future. Check back soon for details of tour venues and dates.

Our three podcasts, hosted by Ali Murfitt, can be heard here. Ali travels around Scotland interviewing experts about ash dieback and what it means for our trees.
