Eight young ash trees that grow in the parking lot of the Jedenáctka swimming area near Mírového hnutí Street must be cut down. The trees are attacked by the fungal disease Chalara fraxinea, which causes ash trees to wilt and die and is a problem throughout Europe. Ash trees are attacked at all developmental stages, regardless of habitat.
A typical symptom is the wilting of trees, drying and dying of annuals, terminal shoots and branches, and the development of root necrosis.
“From the prepared expert opinion, it emerged that the trees in question, which are attacked by the aforementioned fungal disease, have a dry crown ranging from 40% to 80% and brown to blackening lesions on the bark of the shoots. Protection or defense against infection is practically not possible, and it is therefore absolutely necessary to remove the affected ash trees from the location,” stated Prague 11 on social networks.
The trees will be replaced in the place of the original site with eight new fine-leafed avenue trees of the thornless ‘Skyline’ species, which tolerates drought and salinity well and thrives well in a sunny site.
The felling will be carried out by the Jihoměstská majetková service organization on Thursday, November 9.
