Ash Dieback at The Gallops & Sheepcombe Hanger

Regarding Ash Dieback & Required Tree Cutting

Worthing Borough Council Tree Cutting

Ash Dieback disease (Hymenosyphus fraxinea) is affecting some Ash trees in the woodland and unfortunately will have to be felled in February for the safety of the public.

The disease has been slowly killing Ash trees across Europe and the United Kingdom and results in crown dieback which eventually renders the tree unsafe.

New young trees including Oak, Beech, Hornbeam and Field Maple be planted to replace lost trees and ensure the woodland is conserved for the future.

Disturbance will be kept to a minimum and we request that you keep dogs under close control and keep out of any areas cordoned off for the work.

If you would like to come and help plant replacement trees or would like some more information on the woodland please contact:
