NCC’s Ash Dieback team will shortly be inspecting roadside trees within the parish. This will cover roads that their data suggest are used most frequently. The primary focus is to identify Ash trees in decline due to Ash Dieback Disease (ADB) and assess the risk to highway users. They may also identify other trees that are in a dead or dangerous condition.
The team remind landowners that ‘their trees are their responsibility’ and try to raise awareness of ADB. Trees in poor condition but not considered imminently dangerous will have notices fixed to them and be marked with yellow paint to alert the owner that action may be required.
The team has advised the Parish Council that they may contact us if they find any particular areas of concern or have a query regarding ownership of an individual tree or tree group.
