We all increasingly recognise that our activities, products and
services can have an adverse impact on the environment.
Wherever practicable many people seek to eliminate or minimise their
impact, but perhaps we can do more!
Protecting the long-term health of ecosystems
will help ensure a sustainable future, meeting future economic and
social needs, protecting food supplies, farmland and fishing stocks, species
diversity and many more important aspects such as
reducing air pollution outside our schools with trees and vegetation.
Even small to medium enterprises can make an
enormous difference - as they represent 99.9% of the UK's local and national
economy and have the most potential to deliver financial and
environmental benefits -
at Country Landscapes we can help to take a fresh approach to improving your
Whatever your environmental needs - call us now and lets make your
environment a better place!

Hymenoscyphus fraxineus is a fungus that causes ash dieback, a chronic
fungal disease of ash trees in Europe characterised by leaf loss and crown
dieback in infected trees. The fungus was first scientifically described in
2006 under the name Chalara fraxinea
Ash dieback, resilience and a new role in the Forestry Commission "If
we are to avoid a large-scale deterioration and loss of tree cover in ash
dominated woodlands we need to take action. As the disease progresses across
the country forestry work programmes will need to be amended, machinery
upgraded, previously neglected woodland re-engaged with, and safety works
carried out on a scale not seen since the catastrophic outbreak of Dutch elm
disease in the 1970s."
