What is Ash dieback?
If you have Ash trees in your garden, you may have heard about Ash dieback.
Ash dieback is a highly destructive fungal disease affecting ash trees. It causes leaf loss and canopy decline and, in some cases, causes the trees to die.
It is estimated that there are more than 60 million ash trees outside woodlands in the UK and that the majority will become affected with ash dieback in years to come.
A proportion of these infected and weakened trees will pose safety risks, especially if they are next to a busy road, public pathway, school or community grounds.
Anyone with an ash tree on their land has a responsibility to ensure that risk posed by the tree is kept within appropriate limits.
