A dark shadow over our countryside

Up until this week, I hadn't seen the effects of Ash Die Back first hand but I have now and its going to be an awful blight on our beautiful countryside.
I haven't seen it where we live but its obviously going to get to us eventually and like most areas in the UK we have lots of ash trees.
Yesterday as we travelled from Ross on Wye towards Gloucester there were loads of dead and dying trees on both sides of the road and there were also some on the River wye too.
We lost our elms years ago and now with the loss of the Ash trees looming, these man imported disasters are going to change the face of our countryside completely. I find the thought quite depressing. We have a lot to answer for.

That sounds horrible to see, have read about the elm one and we seem to have some form of it here I think
