Ban on Importing of Ash Trees – Chalara Fraxinea Infection
In view of the latest developments regarding the ban on importing of ash trees from Europe, Oxton Estate is able to confirm that all ash trees currently planted at Tithe Green Burial Ground are of British origin and at present appear to be free of the Chalara fraxinea infection.
Our suppliers are still able to supply British grown ash trees that are free from infection, but there remains a substantial future threat to all ash trees throughout the Country.
As such we would strongly advise against choosing an ash tree when considering which type of memorial tree is to be planted.
For further information, please contact the Burial Ground manager Steve Barnes.
