Consultation About Tree Dying Outside 330-332 Warminster Road S8 (our reference 12040937)

Closed 30 Mar 2021

Opened 9 Mar 2021

Results expected 31 Mar 2021

Feedback expected 1 Apr 2021

Overview

A Sorbus Aucuparia (commonly known as a Mountain Ash or Rowan tree) has been identified outside 305-307 Warminster Road having a significant loss of vitality - with around two-thirds of the crown being dead.

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.

Once removed, we propose to replace the tree with an Italian Alder (Alnus Cordata) in 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
