Thanks waterbutts. Watched videos and although I am not in the areas they talked about, it seems it could be this disease. It is causing the die back they talk about and leaves on a nearby haxel tree are also looking sad, rather as if autumn has come early. I will cut out the main affected areas but the DEFRA website recommends using a herbicide Spot burn, can anyone tell me what exactly this is and where I find it. I don't want to lose all the other trees, shrubs and bushes to this so want to act soon.
Any other advice would be welcome.
