Ash is a really important tree for lichens, which supports many rare and threatened species. Plantlife’s toolkits offer advice to help protect these trees from the impacts of ash dieback.
Take a look at our guide for advice on how to mitigate for ash dieback.
More than a quarter of the UK’s lichen species can be found on ash trees, but ash dieback is now widespread across much of the UK.
There is lots of advice available on managing ash dieback in general terms, but there is a lack of advice on what can be done to mitigate the impact of the disease on these rich and important lichen populations.
Plantlife’s work at Horner Wood shows the importance of veteran ash trees and what management techniques can be used.
