50/50 split on felling

The objection was on the grounds that they believed the tree had not yet declined to a point where it was dangerous

100% agreement with the replant location

50/50 split on the replant species

Objection was on the grounds that the proposed replanting tree (Persian Ironwood) would not be a large enough replacement.

This tree was therefore deferred to the Street Tree Partnership due to the 50/50 split consultation outcomes for both the felling and the proposed replanting species.

It was decided that the tree fell will proceed due to the fact that the tree is very clearly in terminal decline and if the deadwood were to be removed, there would be very little tree left.

As Persian Ironwood is a large tree, no recommendation is made to replace the tree with an alternative given that the other respondent agreed with this species. 

Works will therefore proceed as planned.


A Prunus sp (commonly known as a Cherry Tree) has been identified outside 84-86 Crawshaw Grove as being in terminal decline (dying).

An assessment carried out by our tree experts noticed that the tree is in terminal physiological decline, almost half of the crown is now completely dead, and once deadwooded it would not sensible to retain what was left of tree.

Once removed, we propose to replace the tree with a Parrotia persica (Persian Ironwood) in the same location as the original tree.

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:
