Some of the trees along the roads and around the park have become severely affected by Ash Dieback Disease and need to be felled / pruned.

This disease only affects ash trees but, unfortunately, is likely to lead to the death of many of these over the coming years.

The council will be replanting trees to replace the ones that have to be removed.

Please follow signage or guidance from the contractors on site

West Lothian Council is dealing with many trees on public land, such as parks, schools, or within roadside verges that it owns and/or manages.

The council will be planting new trees on our land to ensure that trees are not lost from the West Lothian landscape in the long term, caused by Ash Dieback disease.
