Ash Dieback Work
Published: 24 December 2019
Waverley Borough Council have announced that following recent tree safety inspections within the woodland
at: Bedlow Lane, Copse Edge and Summerlands Woodland, the Tree Team has
highlighted a number of trees across the site which are no longer safe to
retain as a result of Ash Dieback. Ash Dieback is a fungal disease that causes
the death of Ash trees either directly as a consequence of the disease or
because of colonisation by root decaying fungi such as Honey Fungus causing
entire tree failure.
Following consultation with the Forestry Commission the worst affected trees will be felled across the site during January and February 2020, weather dependent. These works have been programmed during this time in order to avoid bird breeding season. Please see the maps below for work locations.
