Warning to look out for ash dieback in Rutland


Rutland residents are being asked to lookout for signs of ash dieback disease affecting local trees.

Following the identification of ash dieback on ash trees in at least one location in Rutland, the council has issued guidance for dealing with infected leaf material, which can’t be accepted at waste disposal sites because it is processed and turned into widely-used compost.

Options for disposing of affected waste include burning the affected leaves once removed from the tree, burying them in the ground or composting, provided the compost will only be used on the site where ash dieback is found.
