Become a citizen scientist and join our campaign to find healthy ash trees that are not suffering from ash dieback

The Living Ash project aims to find ash trees across the UK that are resistent to the fungus that cause Chalara ash dieback disease. These trees could then become the focus of a breeding programme. We're looking for people to join this campaign by finding a healthy ash tree, tagging it and then using the AshTag app to complete an annual survey (of just five questions) about that tree. Would you become a citizen scientist and help us with our campaign?

Make a difference

We need volunteers to get out in the woods, locate healthy ash trees, tag them with our special 'AshTag' and then report back on the condition of that tree each year using our app.

How success will be measured

By the number of new volunteers that join the project
