I am concerned that the Applicant has requested felling of Ash trees "ahead of Ash dieback" disease. Yet the Application form states that a tree/some trees are diseased. What is the case here? It is a complicated application.
National policy is that Ash trees are not felled ahead of Ash die-back. Indeed they should only be felled even with Ash die back when and if they are dangerous. In anticipation of Ash die back (some trees are resistant) succession planting of another species should be practised, not wholesale felling please.
If the trees have ADB and if as a consequence of the disease they are dangerous then felling is the only option.
