Ash trees removed A39 Bude

Anyone who regularly uses the A39 in or out of Bude through Bush will have seen large-scale tree removal recently.

Langleaves Tree Surgery say:

The tree team were out felling Ash trees on both sides along the A39 near Bude, instructed by the council due to Ash dieback and their close proximity to the main road.
Unfortunately this will be seen more and more around the country as the Ash trees deteriorate.

The road is certainly a lot lighter/clearer now though that wasn’t the main purpose, of the clearance, obviously. It seems to have been done safely and well. As the government says: It is important that the effects of ash dieback are planned for and managed, especially in safety-critical locations.
