Funding is available through CPRE Gloucestershire for Parish Councils and community groups in Gloucestershire east of the River Severn to help address the impact of Ash dieback.
Ash dieback is now widespread across the Cotswolds and in the Vale of Gloucester. It cannot be cured and a vast majority of ash trees will be lost over time. Ash is not only important in woodland it is also an important tree the landscape in hedgerows, fields, parks and open spaces. Gloucestershire east of the River Severn is the focus for this scheme as this is the area of the county where ash is most predominant in the landscape.
