Nigel Clark, plant health inspector for the States of Guernsey, said the disease was found at a site in south east Guernsey, and 86 recently imported ash trees had been destroyed. He said the finding underlined the importance of checking all recently imported ash trees. A ban on importing the trees in Guernsey, Jersey and the UK was introduced last month after the disease was found.
