    The continued dry weather really seems to be having an effect on the trees now in my area. Out and about today, I noticed several dead conifers, a totally wilted ash tree, several dying cherry trees, and in my garden, several of the alders are dying. Elms across the road from me are doing worse than usual, the dutch elm disease seems to be spreading faster than recent years (the disease carrying beetles therefore more active).

    Is anyone else noticing this kind of thing?

    have you had a particularly dry year? i thought it was the south-eastern parts of england that were especially dry. trees will respond to high temperatures by wilting but if there's enough water in the ground they will recover when the temp drops back.

    Yes, it's been very dry here too, the southeast obviously has been worse. My lawn is dead and crunchy underfoot, so it's been very dry.
