I am not sure if it will help you, but I found the same question with answer here: How to copy data from Rich Text area field to Text Area field


As Paul already mentioned, there already is an answer to a similar question. However, if that doesn't answer your query, you might want to have a look at the stripHtmlTags() method in Salesforce.

Reference: stripHtmlTags()

But that will replace all the <br/> tags with a space. So consider replacing all your <br/> tags with a newline (/n) using the replaceAll() method
