Ash dieback is a disease affecting ash trees in our countryside and towns. It threatens to wipe out over 90% of Britain’s native ash species and is likely to cause safety issues that need to be managed by landowners in high-risk areas.
Across the Devon Highways network there are many ash trees which if left untreated could potentially cause a significant hazard. That's why Devon Highways will be removing trees infected with ash dieback that pose a risk to the highway, over the next 5 years. These works will take place in all areas.
