At least 30,000 trees are set to be cut down this year by the National Trust due to climate-induced ash dieback infecting the trees in the area.

The charity has warned people that this is yet another symptom of climate change as it has been increasingly disturbing the natural weather patterns. This, in turn, has been promoting disease and pests in the trees, leaving them vulnerable.

Just this year, the UK has been dealing with a widespread plant disease killing off its plant life. This only seems to be a growing threat as many other areas are experiencing similar issues.

The National Trust has also said that they are working on building more climate-resistant forests with heartier trees that are able to withstand the side effects of the climate crisis.

With this dramatic ash dieback, it is suspected that 75% to 95% of the UK’s ash trees will be lost in 20 to 30 years.

This is not only worrisome from an environmental point of view, but also from an economic perspective. It requires a lot of money and manpower in order to try to stop the spread of plant diseases and pests.

This is just one more side effect of climate change that we are starting to see in full bloom.
