A MESSAGE FROM
THE NORFOLK COUNTY COUNCIL
ASH DIEBACK TEAM

We will shortly be in the process of carrying out inspections of roadside trees within your parish. This will not include all roads within the parish, only select roads that our current data suggest are used most frequently. The primary focus of the inspections is to identify ash trees that are in decline due to ash dieback disease (ADB) and assess whether they are now posing a risk to highway users. We may also pick up other trees that are in a dead or dangerous condition. For further information on ADB please visit our webpage: www.norfolk.gov.uk/ashdieback

Our approach is to remind landowners that ‘their trees are their responsibility’ and to raise awareness of ash dieback disease. If trees are found in poor condition but not considered imminently dangerous we are fixing notices to the trunks of trees and marking the trees with yellow paint to inform the owner that they may need to take action.

We may contact you in future if we find any particular areas of concern or have a query regarding ownership of an individual tree or tree group.

Should you need any further information or have any queries concerning the above, please visit our webpage or contact us at ashdieback@norfolk.gov.uk.

Many thanks, kind regards

Ash Dieback Team
