Woodland restoration and the fight against tree disease, case study

How tree disease is affecting the restoration of an ancient woodland in Kent...

Kent landowner Jim Reid's intention is to completely restore the land to native British woodland with a focus on pendunculate oak to produce high quality timber and improve the wildlife value of the ancient site. However Chalara dieback of ash was discovered in this planted ancient woodland in 2008, so Jim had to take extra measures to manage the impact of the disease.
