    Ash dieback detected on new species of tree

    The Forestry Commission is urging industry to be vigilant for signs of ash dieback on new tree and shrub species and report suspected sightings through its Tree Alert reporting system. The call comes after three new tree and shrub species in the same family as ash (Oleaceae) tested positive for ash dieback (Hymenoscyphus fraxineus) infection at the Westonbirt Arboretum, Gloucestershire. The findings are unlikely to have a significant impact on the environment as the newly infected species are ornamental and are not widespread or native to the UK. The infection was identified by staff at the arboretum on mock privet,…

nitrogen pollution

Nitrogen pollution is choking forests’ carbon-protecting fungi

Aug 7, 2018

Under the forest floor lies a complex, hidden world of fungi. These tiny creatures form intimate connections with tree roots, sharing resources with each other and influencing the soil around them, but they are under attack from a surplus of nitrogen pollution. Some of these are arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi, which dig deep into the root tissues. The other kind are ectomycorrhizal fungi, which grow outside, around the root filaments, producing many of the mushrooms that we see on the forest floor. Ectomycorrhizal fungi also act as carbon guardians: they help slow down decomposition, and increase the amount of carbon dioxide locked…
