Albeit deadwood has always 'travelled' as a big dead tree has hit the ground 
at speed. That’s not new.

You might want to go onto arbrtalk and read some of the experiences of 
removing dead & dying ash..if you can't fell it or use a cherry picker you 
might want to consider an early removal. And if you could fell it, there are 
tales of pieces travelling if they fall to the ground. I wouldn't want to use 
the word "exploding" but it gives you a picture of what might happen.

 

I think the risk during removal becomes a more significant issue than the 
risk of tree & branch failure before that point..although leave it long 
enough & you can have both together. It's one of the reasons why the Ministry 
of Defence & Surrey Wildlife Trust have clear felled live ash prior to 
waiting for tree death.
