How can a fungus be such a danger to ash?

The British gov­ern­ment has reacted to the spread of Ash die­back by ban­ning Ash imports to the UK. The Food and Environment Research Agency have released a video explain­ing how the life cycle of the fungus Chalara fraxinea can spread through Ash.

The Forestry Commission also has guides on how to recog­nise the symp­toms of a Chalara fraxinea infec­tion. If you’re from out­side the UK, news sites cov­er­ing this story include the BBC, the Guardian and Channel4.
