100% agreement with all items.  Works will proceed as planned.


A Prunus Kanzan (commonly known as a Cherry tree) has been identified on Chorley Drive outside number 1 as dying.

An assessment carried out by our tree experts identified that the tree was in poor structural and physiological condition.  Ganoderma sp. is causing decay of the roots and base, and the cavity at the base exceeds 40cm with an inwards progression.  The crown is significantly declining-dying back and the tree is in a very poor overall condition with less than 1-2 years remaining live. 

Once removed, we propose to replace the tree with an Magnolia kobus (Kobushi magnolia) in the same location as the original tree.

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.
