MINEHEAD, ENGLAND - JANUARY 12: Darren Smith of Midsomerset Forestry fells another larch tree at the National Trust's Staple Plantation on the Quantock Hills on January 12, 2011 near Minehead, England. Currently thousands of infected larch trees are being felled in the Somerset woodland in a bid to try and halt the spread of the deadly disease known as Sudden Oak Death. The airborne disease, originally from the USA and which can jump species, is spreading so fast some commentators are calling it the "foot and mouth" of trees. (Photo by Matt Cardy/Getty Images) less
