Consultation About A Dying Tree on Chesterfield Road South outside hotel 3rd in row of 5 (our reference 12046437)

Closed 3 Mar 2023

Opened 9 Feb 2023

Overview

A Prunus avium (commonly known as a Cherry tree) has been identified on Chesterfield Road South outside the hotel, 3rd in a row of 5, directly adjacent to the 40mph repeater sign numbered 001040 as dying. 

An assessment carried out by our tree experts identified that the tree has Ganoderma decay at the base and is a poor quality specimen, which is unsuitable for retention on a trunk road.

Once removed, we propose to replace the tree with a Pinus sylvestris (Scots Pine tree) which will be located in the verge, midway in the gap between cherry trees, opposite street lighting column 10 outside the hotel (relocated 25m away from the closed canopy).

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.
