1950
In Britain, the sweet chestnut, Castanea sativa, is at the northern limit of its distribution, and as a forest tree it is of importance in the southern half of England only. So far, in Britain, it has not been seriously affected by disease, however, it is a serious matter that Chestnut Blight, which has ravaged the native stands of chestnut in the eastern United States, should now have established itself in Southern Europe. The purpose of this Booklet is to describe, with the aid of coloured illustrations, the appearance of the disease, so that familiarity with the symptoms may lead to rapid recognition of the fungus, should it ever reach this country.
