Ash die back trees to be felled in Bowerhill (Hornchurch Rd area)
Following a recent survey on Wiltshire Council’s ash trees a number of trees were identified in the Hornchurch Road Public Open Space area as requiring immediate removal due to ash die back. Click here for more information
Those trees most affected in the area will be removed within the next 2-4 weeks during the first tranche of works, with the other trees identified to be removed within 4-6 months.
Other trees identified in the survey will be resurveyed next year, however, statistically, it’s unlikely that they will all survive. They will all be managed appropriately as it’s hoped some might offer some resilience and perhaps provide a seed bank.
Please see the map below identifying which trees will be removed, those in purple or red will be removed within the next 2-4 weeks, any in orange are likely to be removed within 4-6 months with trees in green being resurveyed next year.
