4 trees with ash die back

4 trees with ash die back between B4027 and Burditch Bank and branches are breaking off. This was previous reported under ENQ21909276. And was closed with the comment ".... OCC, as the local highway authority, maintain the HMPE (highway maintainable at public expense) from boundary feature to boundary feature. As such the vegetation present is maintainable by the adjacent property/land owner". In this case OCC are responsible for both side of the boundary feature and there is not another landowner involved as OCC is the adjacent land owner. Therefore I believe these trees do fall under your responsibility and the issues needs to be addressed as they are becoming more dangerous

Thank you for your report. I have visited site and have inspected the trees described in the enquiry. The trees are situated on a piece of land which is not part of the maintained highway at public expense as was reported last year. I am currently investigating who is responsible for this land and subsequent maintenance. I am also exploring options regarding managing the trees if no land owner can be contacted. I have your contact details, which you have provided and i shall update you directly.
Many thanks for your enquiry.
