Having recently done some work on a site with some magnificent oak trees almost certainly doomed due to acute oak decline (a bacterial infection I gather) it would be so good if we could marshal ants or anything helpful that could help these trees survive before the landscape is blighted by a similar catastrophe to Dutch Elm's decimations. I know there have been trials of garlic products (Allicin) injected into Horse Chestnuts to help in the fight against Bleeding Canker. Natural solutions are utterly valid in the fight against all of these problems - surely we need a multi-pronged attack and to just sit back and await a scientific 'marvel' may be too late to help....
