Consultation About Tree Dying Outside 28 - 30 Sandstone Close

Closed 8 Jun 2021

Opened 18 May 2021

Results expected 9 Jun 2021

Feedback expected 10 Jun 2021

Overview

A Malus floribunda (commonly known as a Japanese Crab Apple Tree) has been identified outside 28 - 30 Sandstone Road as dying   

An assessment carried out by our tree experts estimates that it has less than 5 years of safe useful life on the highway.  As the tree can no longer be safely retained, a recommendation has been made to remove the tree and is affected by Chondrostereum purpureum

Once removed, we propose to replace the tree with a pink flowering Hawthorn (Crataegus leavigata 'Paul's Scarlet') in a new tree pit at the same location as the original tree.

Why we are consulting

The Sheffield Tree Partnership have developed the draft Sheffield Street Tree Partnership Working Strategy.  This sets out our commitment to explain to local residents the reasons behind decisions to remove trees, and provide the opportunity to challenge these decisions through an open and transparent process.

A copy of the draft strategy is available at: https://www.wildsheffield.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/FINAL-Sheffield-Street-Tree-Partnership-Working-Strategy-July-2020.pdf
