I have noticed Dutch Elm disease has taken hold of semi-mature Elms this summer in Todmorden.

Affected foliage is wilting and dying progressively from the crown downwards.

I have seen younger Elms affected by this disease over the last couple of years but it now seems to have got more serious.

Has anyone noticed Elms down the valley with signs of DED?

We still have many old Elms that escaped the last serious outbreak of 25-30 years ago.
