Ash dieback

{Play}tree-g119aabb33640 We have been asked to share information about trees that will be removed within the next weeks and months in various parts of the town

Sharing on behalf of Wiltshire Council.  

Essential works to council owned trees arising from recent ash dieback survey

Following a recent survey of all (Wiltshire) Council owned ash trees a number of trees were identified as requiring immediate removal, the attached map shows the location of all the ash that were picked up on the survey in the area where the first tranche of works will be undertaken, those in purple or red will be removed within the next 4-6 weeks, those in orange within the next 4-6 months.

The affected trees in Hilliers Yard are being dealt with by Waitrose.

The trees identified by the green circles will be resurveyed next year, statistically, it’s unlikely that they will all survive however, they will all be managed appropriately as it’s hoped some might offer some resilience and perhaps provide us with a seed bank.

There is likely to be further significant tree loss across the county, when I have more details I’ll pass them on.

Ordinarily, in the case of any tree removals I’d attach a notice to the tree (s) to inform any local residents however, in this instance it’s simply impractical given the volume of removals across the county, I’ll therefore need to rely on yourselves and the local councillors to cascade the message.
