• Ash tree in the countryside

Ash dieback is a disease affecting ash trees in our countryside and towns. It threatens to wipe out over 90% of Britain’s native ash species and is likely to cause safety issues that need to be managed by landowners in high-risk areas.

Loss of ash trees, woodland, and hedgerow species could have a major impact on the wildlife and character of Devon’s countryside.

Organisations, communities and individuals across Devon are joining forces to address ash dieback. This website provides key information and advice relating to ash dieback in Devon.

We urge everyone to take action now to combat the safety and environmental impacts of this unstoppable disease.
