Consultation About Decaying / Structurally Compromised Tree on Bochum Parkway S8 (our reference 12042978)

Closed 27 Aug 2021

Opened 6 Aug 2021

Results expected 30 Aug 2021

Feedback expected 31 Aug 2021

Overview

An Acer Saccharinum (commonly known as a Sugar Maple) has been identified on Bochum Parkway outside the carpark as being decaying to a point that it has become structurally compromised possibly due to root disturbance following the mast installation.

An assessment carried out by our tree experts advises that the tree's root system is failing.  

Tree is in poot condition.

Once removed, we propose to replace the tree with a Magnolia Kubos (Japanese Magnolia) in the verge outside 26 Little Norton Lane due to the orginal location no longer being suitible for replanting.

Why your views matter

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
