The giant Elm trees which found adoration in 3000-year-old scriptures are today dying in the millions in Europe. Their decimation is credited to beetles which spread the fungus causing the Dutch Elm disease. Scientists are scurrying to find a solution to the disease which kills the trees in just three weeks. They have used insecticides, vaccines, introduced wasps to reduce the beetle population, crossbred European Elm trees with the stronger Asian ones and genetically modified the trees. But the fungus rapidly adapted to new conditions leaving the fate of the Elm trees in grave danger.
