Fought a battle with it a few years back. It's a fungus but it's brought on by rain and dampness. In the Seattle area it's almost impossible to avoid unless you get a resistant variety like Frost. Mine were Elberta, and only lasted about 3 years. I've heard if you cover them to keep rain off from about January thru March it helps. Otherwise spray with oil, but the instructions say spray when you don't expect rain. Like I said, in the Seattle area you would only be able to spray in mid-August...

Don't know about your ash, though.

I'm no expert, but I've had experience with peach-tree curl disease. It's a fungus, and there is treatment for it, but it's constant spraying. Here's a website:

Your ash may have a type of fungus too, but I don't know much about ash trees.
