Threatened species of large urban trees

Other Names:
Oak dieback
Alder dieback
Large trees in public city spaces, such as oaks, limes, planes and chestnuts are disappearing as city planners choose to plant smaller trees to replace the large ones as they die off.
More oaks and alders now suffer from dieback, a disease that is not well understood. Plane trees suffer increasingly from anthracnose.
