|This Ash tree is in the forefront of the front garden not far from the rear edge of the public pavement.
If it has ADB then it could become a danger to the public and would merit felling.
We rely on the expertise of the Tree Officer to confirm that it does have ADB as no supporting Arboricultural support was submitted with the Application.
If it does not have ADB then it should remain. In such circumstances it could be resistant to the disease.
If it is lost then could the community ask the Applicant, in their new landscaping, to include a tree in their planting? We are losing far too many of all our trees - and will lose 20% of all UK trees due to ADB.
It takes years for a replacement tree to grow to a size to replace the environmental benefit the lost tree provided at the moment of its felling, so there should be no delay. Anticipatory succession planting would be ideal.
