Consultation About A Decaying / Structurally Compromised Tree Outside Pizza Express on Ecclesall Road (Our Ref 12046526)

Closed 28 Oct 2022

Opened 6 Oct 2022

Results expected 2 Nov 2022

Feedback expected 7 Nov 2022

Overview

A Platanus x hispanica (commonly known as a London plane) has been identified outside Pizza Express on Ecclesall Road as decaying. 


An assessment carried out by our tree experts noticed that the tree has meripilus decay fungi, present in the root system.  Fungi gradually decays supporting roots leading to complete failure. Ultimately the tree will become unsafe to retain on a busy highway. The recommendation is to proactively and safely remove the tree early. 

Once removed, we propose to replace the tree with a Celtis australis (European nettle tree) in a close location to the previous tree (Outside Pizza Express, behind bus lane sign opposite number 476).  

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
