Press Release

29 November, 2012

Ash die back

A case of ash die back has been confirmed on council-owned land in Newport.

The new plant, in the grounds of Llanwern High School, was sourced from a nursery in North Wales.

Action is now being taken to eradicate infection and prevent wider transmission of the infection.

The initial discovery was made by council officers who have been checking trees on council land for sign of the disease and it was confirmed by DEFRA.

Newport City Council continues to take the health and care of trees very seriously for the benefit and protection of residents and it has tree management plans in place to identify and deal with any problems.
