Control of larch disease at Healey Nab Jan 2020

Work is due to start in February to remove around 2,500 larch trees covering 3.5 hectares at Healey Nab, which are affected by Phytophthora ramorum, an algae-like organism which causes Sudden Larch Death.

As the owner of the site, Lancashire County Council has received a Statutory Plant Health Notice from the Forestry Commission, which is a legal notice requiring the trees to be cleared.
