Consultation About A Dying Tree Opposite number 398 Firth Park Road S5 (our reference 12046413)

Closes 21 Feb 2023

Opened 30 Jan 2023

Results expected 24 Feb 2023

Feedback expected 3 Mar 2023

Overview

An Ulmus glabra (commonly known as a Wych elm tree) has been identified opposite number 398 Firth Park Road as dying.

An assessment carried out by our tree experts identified that the tree is dying. Almost all of the entire crown has died, likely due to drought.  There are no signs of Dutch Elm Disease.  Removal is recommended to prevent failure onto the busy road and footway. 

Once removed, we propose to replace this tree with an Ulmus 'Rebona' (a Cultivar), which will be planted in the same location as the original tree, opposite number 398. 

Why your views matter

The Sheffield Tree Partnership have developed the Sheffield Street Tree Partnership 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.
