The results from this work have been published<sup><sup>[1]</sup></sup>.

However, there is no single tree species that would be able to fill the niche provided by ash in terms of both its ecosystem characteristics and biodiversity contribution.</p><p> </p><p>The Forestry Commission provides advice to woodland managers about how best to manage and adapt to ash dieback, for example, by planting a variety of tree species as diversity brings resilience to pests and diseases.</p><p> </p><p>[1] <a href="http://publications.naturalengland.org.uk/publication/5273931279761408" target="_blank">http://publications.naturalengland.org.uk/publication/5273931279761408</a></p>
