There were no responses to this consultation, works will therefore proceed as planned to replace the tree. 

Overview

A Betula pendula (commonly known as a Birch Tree) has been identified on Eckington Way near to Aldi (by lamp post number 66) as having Piptoporus betulinus decay of the stem and scaffolds, tree in serious decline next to major A road and is dying.

An assessment carried out by our tree experts noticed that the tree was in terminal decline and very poor physiological condition next to an A road

Once removed, we propose to replace the tree with a Quercus robur (Oak Tree). This will be relocated to outside 32 Bocking Lane.

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
