Ash dieback

Ash dieback

The Parish Council have been notified that some of the ash trees on the Deer Park may be showing early signs of having ash dieback.

The trees are monitored by a qualified tree surgeon who is registered with The Arboricultural Association. When it is confirmed that they have developed the fungus and we are advised that they need to be removed we will do so, along with looking at a replacement programme (older/established trees can resist it for some time and the trees on the park are well established).

If it is confirmed that the trees have ash dieback, it is likely other trees in the area will be affected.

If you have ash trees and would like to know more information about the disease you can find out further information on the websites below:
