The young Ash trees in this woodland are dying with about 95% loss. All coming out and starting again.

It’s a really sad situation with the dying ash. Same here in Sweden even if we don’t have so much ash in our forests. Same with elm to. Probably even worser than the ash. What will the next generation be at this site? Thanks for sharing you video!

The loss of Ash in west Wales is going to have a major impact on countryside, we have about 40% Ash coverage here.
Interestingly we are starting to gain Elm again in the woods and hedgerows, but it is now the right age to host the beetle which carries the disease.
This site is going to be replanted with 80% Cherry and Oak, and 20% sorbus and Birch.

Interesting that you have so much hardwoods in Wales Muz. I’ve only been to Wales twice, in Welchpool where I mainly saw softwood – different kinds of spruce. I was there in my previous life to sell machines for planting and scarifying to Natural Resources Wales. That is probably why I mainly saw softwood?
Anyway, how does the distribution between tree species look in Wales?
