This goes out to guitar builders and everyone else. Most of the ash trees in this green and pleasant land are going to die due to the lazy indifference of the powers that be. The fungus Chalara Fraxinea has now reached Northumberland, where I live. Some trees will have genetic resistance and survive, many more will be burnt. Not even as solid fuel, just burnt. Wood products will not spread the disease if treated properly. I don't think this will mean lots of cheap guitar wood though (due to the costs of treatment plus the usual forestry logistics) and I wouldn't be happy if it did. All this could have been prevented and it sickens me.
