Overview

A Sorbus intermedia (commonly known as a Swedish Whitebeam) has been identified on East Bank Road outside 455 as dying.

An assessment carried out by our tree experts noticed that the tree had three different fungal brackets at the base including suspected Polyporus squamous and Meripilus giganteus,

The tree has severe crown dieback, is a poor specimen amd has very limited life remaining.

Once removed, we propose to replace the tree with a Eucommia ulmoides (Rubber Tree) 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: https://www.wildsheffield.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/FINAL-Sheffield-Street-Tree-Partnership-Working-Strategy-July-2020.pdf
