More than a thousand trees being cut down on A31 Hog's Back

Published by Lettie Buxton at 4:15pm 3rd March 2020. (Updated at 11:04am 6th March 2020)

A total of 1,200 trees are being cut down along the Hog's Back because of disease.

Surrey County Council has confirmed the trees are suffering from ash dieback - a chronic fungal disease afflicting ash trees.

The affected area is on both sides of the A31.

Surrey County Council said the work was taking place this winter.

A spokesperson said while they try to keep trees where possible, they have to take into consideration the safety of drivers on a road with high speeds.
