Consultation About Tree Dying outside 26 Kenbourne Road (our reference 12043124)

Closes 4 Aug 2021

Opened 14 Jul 2021

Results expected 5 Aug 2021

Feedback expected 6 Aug 2021

Overview

A Fraxinus excelsior , (commonly known as an Ash tree) has been identified outside 26 Kenbourne Road as dying.

An assessment carried out by our tree experts noticed that the tree has Ash dieback and it is believed the tree has less than 2 years safe life left.

Once removed, we propose to replace the tree with an Ulmus "New Horizon" which is a Dutch Elm Disease resistant cultivar of the Elm tree. This will be 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
