problem with ash trees

jenifer taggart asked 6 years ago

have noticed that some ash trees in my area have a blackish hue to them. When you look closely at branches it looks like hundreds of tiny, flat, dark coloured leave like structures are present. have been told that trees have gone to seed too early. Is this what has happened and what has caused it.

Ash usually has small male flowers and larger elongated female flowers on separate trees.

These are both blackish at the start and turn green. They can be affected by frost and harsh winds and may blacken further and become dried.
