A pleasant landscape moment: fog in the background as the rising sun illuminated first the surrounding hills and then the shapely Ash tree at Frandy, Glen Devon.

I would normally work from ‘the office’ though presently I’m fulfilling my essential duties working from home, I’m seeing much more of my family and see things in the garden I wouldn’t normally see. My photography is limited to what I can see in or from my garden at present due to Covid19 precautions, I am fortunate to have space around me.

 

Last Friday we had dark skies and rain in the late afternoon, after the rain had stopped the light was gorgeous, bright and yellow. I grabbed my camera at 5pm and took this shot of the ash tree over the hedge which was illuminated by the after light whilst the dark skies of the storm were in the background, if I had been in ‘the office’ I would have missed it.

 

About Ash Dieback:

 

Ash dieback (Hymenoscyphus fraxineus) is a fungus which originated in Asia. It doesn’t cause much damage on its native hosts of the Manchurian ash (Fraxinus mandshurica) and the Chinese ash (Fraxinus chinensis) in its native range. However, its introduction to Europe about 30 years ago has devastated the European ash (Fraxinus excelsior) because our native ash species did not evolve with the fungus and this means it has no natural defence against it.

 

The fungus overwinters in leaf litter on the ground, particularly on ash leaf stalks. It produces small white fruiting bodies between July and October which release spores into the surrounding atmosphere.

 

These spores can blow tens of miles away. They land on leaves, stick to and then penetrate into the leaf and beyond. The fungus then grows inside the tree, eventually blocking its water transport systems, causing it to die.

 

The tree can fight back, but year-on-year infections will eventually kill it.

 

The ash dieback fungus wasn’t formally described until 2006, but it has been known of in Europe for about 30 years.

 

In the UK, ash dieback has had the most impact in the south-east of England. This is where it was first recorded in the UK back in 2012. It is unknown how long the fungus was in the area before the symptoms became apparent, perhaps some years. However we are still at the beginning of the epidemic, so we won’t know the full impact for a while. The slow progress of the disease exacerbates this.

 

The spores of this fungus can travel in the wind so it is possible that it arrived in the UK naturally however it was also inadvertently imported on ash saplings. The UK was importing thousands of ash plants from parts of Europe until a ban came into place in 2012. This undoubtedly sped up the spread of the disease within the UK because the disease was able to spread from areas of new planting via wind to mature trees.

 

It’s thought that we are going to lose up to 95% of our ash trees in the UK. This is going to have a devastating impact on the landscape and the biodiversity of our woodlands, as well as a major loss in connections between habitats as we lose hedges and individual trees outside of woods.

 

There is hope on the horizon. Initial findings suggest that we might have some trees that are tolerant to ash dieback, meaning that the population could eventually recover over time (likely over 50 years).

 

However, tolerance to the disease is complicated because a number of factors play into it including genetic traits, the health of the tree and the number of ash dieback spores in the atmosphere.

El pantà de Sant Llorenç de Montgai és un embassament del riu Segre, creat per una presa situada entre el municipi d'Os de Balaguer i a prop del nucli de població de Sant Llorenç de Montgai, dins el terme municipal de Camarasa, que s'estén pels termes de Camarasa i Os de Balaguer. Es va construir l'any 1930 i té una superfície total d'unes 131 hectàrees i una capacitat total de 10 hm3. La presa té una alçada de 25 metres des de la cimentació.

 

La part del pantà actualment inclosa dins la zona humida "Pantà de Sant Llorenç de Montgai" és la compresa entre la presa i la població de Camarassa, ja que s'ha ampliat des de la primera delimitació per tal d'incloure també l'interessant bosc de ribera i les comunitats higròfiles associades de la cua de l'embassament.

 

Presenta una plena naturalització, facilitada per una orografia de relleu suau. Als marges s'hi ha establert una densa franja de canyissar amb boga (Typha angustifolia), així com algunes jonqueres. A les riberes i illes fluvials s'hi fa un bosc de ribera amb abundants àlbers (Populus alba), salzes blancs (Salix alba), freixes (Fraxinus excelsior), verns (Alnus glutinosa), xops (Populus nigra), etc.

 

Pel que fa a la fauna vertebrada, el pantà és un punt molt important de nidificació, refugi i hivernada d'ocells aquàtics. Com a nidificants cal fer esment de l'agró roig (Ardea purpurea), el bernat pescaire (Ardea cinerea), el cabussó emplomallat (Podiceps cristatus), el cabusset (Tachybaptus ruficollis), el martinet menut (Ixobrychus minutus) i la fotja (Fulica atra). El pantà destaca també com a dormidor d'anàtides, limícoles, fotges i corbs marins. Cal destacar també la presència d'arpella, així com de llúdriga, entre els mamífers. Pel que fa als invertebrats, cal destacar la presència del mol·lusc Anodonta cygnea.

Fraxinus excelsior - Linnaeus, 1753.

Light airy canopy of the spectacular old Common or European ash tree (Fraxinus excelsior) was overhanging the path. It was nicely contrasted with light feathery clouds in blue sky. Taken at Primrose Hill Community Woodland, just discovered recently this charming little wood that was planted in 2000 thank you to the efforts of local community. Many native trees and bushes including Common ash and oak, beach, alder; and number of others were planted and growing strong. Bath, BANES, UK

Ash tree on limestone, Yorkshire Dales.

 

Deciduous native woodland is scarce in the Yorkshire Dales (& elsewhere in the UK uplands) from centuries of preference for pasturing sheep in particular. And now, lately, the remnant native ash trees are direly threatened by disease ...

 

Why might this matter? Because woodland is a natural climax that creates & maintains soil fertility along with ecological diversity. And it could be argued that as humans, for our mental & planetary health we need trees.

 

But we are all mortal, as is the planet we ride on and the universe in which it sings.

 

Who knows where we're headed?
