People in the Peak District are being asked to notify park authories if they have planted any ash trees in the past six years.

It is part of a national appeal to identify areas that may have been affected by the ash dieback disease (chalara fraxinea).

The Peak District National Park Authority is urging people to clean their footwear, clothing, bicycles or buggies, to make sure that they don’t transfer any infected spores from one area to another.
