Chalara fraxinea (Chalara ash dieback) updated PRA
Updated PRA now available
Chalara fraxinea (Chalara ash dieback) is a damaging organism of certain species of Fraxinus (ash), including F. excelsior, which is the third most common broadleaved species in the UK. As C. fraxinea represents a substantial threat to the UK's forests, Forest Research prepared a risk assessment, which described the nature and extent of that threat and possible risk management measures. The risk assessment was subsequently published for consultation on the Fera website with comments invited by the end of October 2012.
Following a review of the responses received to the consultation and of subsequent developments in our understanding of the organism, an updated, more comprehensive PRA is now available and can be accessed via the following link:
