Consultation About A Dying Tree on Fox Hill Close outside 12 (our reference 12044981)

Closed 29 Apr 2022

Opened 8 Apr 2022

Results expected 2 May 2022

Feedback expected 3 May 2022

Overview

A Malus tschonoskii (commonly known as a Crab Apple Tree) has been identified outside 12 Fox Hill Close as dying.

An assessment carried out by our tree experts noticed that the tree had large bark lesions throught the crown and trunk.

The tree had dead bark and the sapwood was found to be actively decaying.  

The inspector deemed that the tree had no prospect of recovery and that it was unsafe to retain.

Once removed, we propose to replace the tree with a Magnolia Kobus (Magnolia Tree) in the same location.

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
