Ash dieback

This page contains information on ash dieback work.


To prevent the spread of ash dieback and keep Gloucestershire’s roads safe, highway crews are removing infected trees and replanting two trees for every diseased tree cut down around the county.

Cllr Nigel Moor, cabinet member for environment and planning said: "Cutting down any tree is a huge loss to our country's biodiversity, but this is something we must do to stop more ash trees becoming diseased. We are fully committed to stopping this disease and saving as many trees as we can. Undertaking a major programme of replanting two trees for each infected ash tree felled will also help us reach our target of becoming a carbon neutral county.
