Consultation About A Dying Tree on Abbey Lane 5 metres from Street Lighting Column number 106 (our reference 12046582)

Closed 3 Mar 2023

Opened 9 Feb 2023

Results expected 8 Mar 2023

Feedback expected 15 Mar 2023


A Fraxinus excelsior (commonly known as an Ash tree) has been identified on Abbey Lane 5 metres from Street Lighting column number 106 as dying.

An assessment carried out by our tree experts identified that the tree has Ash dieback (category 3) and is in severe decline.  Therefore, we are unable to retain this tree on a busy A road. 

Once removed, we propose to replace the tree with a Taxus baccata (Common yew tree), which will be located in the verge opposite and 5 metres lower than Street Lighting column number 107, i.e. adjacent to chestnut stem in the woods (relocated uphill to an open position).

Why your views matter

The Sheffield Tree Partnership have developed the Sheffield Street Tree Partnership 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.
