We took an allotment over in March which was covered in trees as was quite a proportion of the site. There were quite a few trees which I think are Elm trees which have been cut down. We still have the stumps of a few and we have saved all the logs for fires.

The stumps have started to grow again but the foilage looks like it has a fungal disease which looks like potato blight (which is what I thought it was - idiot !!), the allotment site suffered badley with blight this year. The logs that we have in a pile have a white growth on them.

So my question is - How do I idenitify the disease, if it turns out to be something like Dutch Elm Disease - what do I do ?
