Feedback expected 6 Nov 2021

Results updated 3 Dec 2021

100% disagreement with fell

100% agreement with replant location

100% agreement with replant species

This tree was deferred to the Street Tree Partnership due to the objection to the proposed felling

The Council and Amey believe due to the progresssive lean of this tree and condition this necessitates the tree being replaced so works will proceed as planned.

Overview

A Pyrus Chanticleer (commonly known as a Callery pear) has been identified on Ferriby Road outside 15 as being structurally comprimised. 

An assessment carried out by our tree experts noticed that the tree has a slowly worsening lean into the carraigeway and lifing the footway by surface roots.  It is suspected the tree root plate is failing.

Once removed, we propose to replace the tree with a Betula pendula (Silver Birch), which will be planted in the same location outside 15 Ferriby Road.

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
