Ash Dieback Tree Survey

The Arb Team have recently been successful in winning a local authority tender to inspect all Ash trees within falling distance of the public highway within the county borough of Neath Port Talbot.

If you are travelling around the Port Talbot, Neath or Pontardawe areas during the next few months you may well see our staff inspecting and marking infected trees adjacent to the authorities 855 kilometers of A, B, C and unclassified roads. Even if you miss them expect to see yellow dots starting to appear on infected trees across all areas of the county.

After the trees have been marked the local authority will begin a programme to remove these potentially dangerous trees from land in their ownership. If the infected trees are on private land and within falling distance of a public highway the land owner will be contacted and asked to remove the tree or trees as soon as reasonably practicable.


A document has been produced by the Tree Council (download below) which provides specific advice to private landowners. This document provides information on legal responsibilities and an appropriate course of action if you have dying Ash trees on your property.
