You don&apos;t have to go to the countryside to see them. In and around towns and cities there are 2.2 million. In woodland, only the oak is more common.</p><p>However, according to a review led by Dr Peter Thomas of Keele University and published in the Journal of Ecology, &quot;between the fungal disease ash dieback and a bright green beetle called the emerald ash borer, it is likely that almost all ash trees in Europe will be wiped out - just as the elm was largely eliminated by Dutch elm disease&quot;.</p><p>Ash dieback, also known as Chalara, is a disease that was first seen in Eastern Europe in 1992. It now affects more than 2 million sq km, from Scandinavia to Italy.</p><figure class=\"media-landscape no-caption full-width\"> </figure><figure class=\"media-landscape has-caption full-width\"> <div class=\"image-and-copyright-container\"> <span class=\"off-screen\">Image copyright</span> <span class=\"story-image-copyright\">Getty Images</span> </div> <figcaption class=\"media-caption\"> <span class=\"off-screen\">Image caption</span> <span class=\"media-caption__text\"> The loss of ash trees won&apos;t just change the landscape, it will have a severe impact on biodiversity </span> </figcaption> </figure><p>It was identified in England in 2012 in a consignment of imported infected trees. It has since spread from Norfolk and Suffolk to South Wales. Caused by the fungus <i>Hymenoscyphus fraxineus</i>, it kills the leaves, then the branches, trunk and eventually the whole tree. It has the potential to destroy 95% of ash trees in the UK.</p><p>The emerald ash borer is a bright green beetle that, like ash dieback, is native to Asia. It&apos;s not yet in the UK but is spreading west from Moscow at a rate of 25 miles (41 km) a year and is thought to have reached Sweden.</p><p>The adult beetles feed on ash trees and cause little damage. However the larvae bore under the bark and in to the wood, killing the tree.</p><p>According to Dr Thomas: &quot;Our European ash is very susceptible to the beetle. It is only a matter of time before it spreads across the rest of Europe - including Britain - and the beetle is set to become the biggest threat faced by ash in Europe, potentially far more serious than ash dieback.&quot;</p><figure class=\"media-landscape has-caption full-width\"> <div class=\"image-and-copyright-container\"> <span class=\"off-screen\">Image copyright</span> <span class=\"story-image-copyright\">Science Photo Library</span> </div> <figcaption class=\"media-caption\"> <span class=\"off-screen\">Image caption</span> <span class=\"media-caption__text\"> The emerald ash borer also threatens ash trees </span> </figcaption> </figure><p>This won&apos;t just change our landscape - it will have a severe impact on biodiversity. 1,000 species are associated with ash or ash woodland, including 12 types of bird, 55 mammals and 239 invertebrates.</p><p>Mr Thomas said, &quot;Of these, over 100 species of lichens, fungi and insects are dependent upon the ash tree and are likely to decline or become extinct if the ash was gone.</p><p>&quot;Some other trees such as alder, small-leaved lime and rowan can provide homes for some of these species... but if the ash went, the British countryside would never look the same again.&quot;</p><p>One small hope is that some cloned ash trees have shown resistance against the fungus. But that won&apos;t protect them against the beetle.</p><p>Follow Claire <a href=\"http://twitter.com/bbcmarshall\" class=\"story-body__link-external\">on Twitter.</a></p> </div></div>",
