Rare and Precious? They're common enough hereabouts. We rescued one a
couple of years ago took off the massive sucker from the rootstock which
was becoming dominant. Precious? Does that mean hideously ugly?

The friends group ought to start by ripping up the paving from around that
one; no?

But they are on an island, Bill - maybe it hasn’t got there yet.
More seriously, weeping ash of this sort are rare and precious things -
the Victorians used to top-work them on to a straight stem at a proper
height; nowadays nurseries work them at 1.5 or so max, and you get horrible
tent-shaped things.  They do suffer from decay in the lateral limbs coming
off the stock, but often cope pretty well with it;  If I were the Council,
and could get a legal agreement with the friends I'd let em get on with
taking over responsibility for it.  Local Authorities are not
infallible.............

Seems like these people may have cracked the Ash dieback disease conundrum.

Who’s going to tell them…?

(And what’s the chance they’d listen?)

Just goes to show, you can’t educate Pork!
