Overview

A Fraxinus excelsior (commonly known as an Ash Tree) has been identified on East Bank Road outside 644 as dying.

An assessment carried out by our tree experts noticed that the tree was decayed and hollowed at base when hammer sounded, and there were fungal fruit bodies present - suspected to be Collybia.

Once removed, we propose to replace the tree with a Platanus x hispanica (London Plane) which will be relocated by 25 metres on the street to centrally in verge opposite 645 (outside 654) to avoid established tree canopies

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
