Ash Dieback: Discussion

Mr. John O'Connell:

One of the primary reasons afforestation has dropped way back is the way in which forest owners as a group have been treated, for example, with regard to ash dieback. We are the primary stakeholders yet one only hears mention of the processors and everything else that surrounds the industry. Without us, these other jobs would not exist. We have been dealt a very unfair hand.
