  • We are sorry but we are not taking immediate action with this report because our tree officer has inspected this Ash tree and found it to be in good condition and not a foreseeable hazard. It is expected that the tree will succumb to ash dieback disease in the future and will need to be taken down, but while it remains in good condition we do not think it's removal is justified. Thank you for reporting this matter.

    State changed to: No further action
