Consultation About Tree in Decline outside 40 Stanwood Avenue

Closed 14 Jun 2021

Opened 24 May 2021

Results expected 15 Jun 2021

Feedback expected 16 Jun 2021

Overview

A Malus sylvestris (Crab Apple Tree) outside 40 Stanwood Avenue has been found to be in decline.

An assessment carried out by our tree experts advises that this tree in is in very poor physiological condition, has suffered from multiple scaffold limb failures and fruiting body (fungus) believed to be Phellinus has been identified at the crown break suggesting an further advancement of decay.  Further failures of branches are deemed to be likely as condition deteriorates

Once removed, we propose to replace the tree with a Cornus mas (Cornelian Cherry Tree) relocated slightly to be opposite the driveway of number 15 Stanwood Avenue due to compaction issues at the current location. 

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
