Ash dieback is a highly infectious disease affecting ash trees. It has killed up to 85% of ash in Northern Europe and has been spreading across the UK since 2012. The disease is now beginning to cause extensive dieback of ash in Sheffield. Once the disease reaches an advanced stage, affected trees can become unpredictably brittle and drop branches or fail. Full details of how we are managing the disease can be found here: https://www.sheffield.gov.uk/home/parks-sport-recreation/ash-dieback-disease

Work will be taking place between now and the end February 2022.

Please follow diversions, avoid working areas and take notice of warning signs placed by our tree contractor.

Road and path closures may be in place for the duration of the works for public safety.

Should you require any further information on the intended work please contact parksandcountryside@sheffield.gov.uk

Our Trees & Woodlands Strategy can also be found here: https://www.sheffield.gov.uk/content/sheffield/home/parks-sport-recreation/trees-woodlands-strategies.html
