Consultation About A Decaying / Structurally Compromised Tree On Greenhill Parkway S8 opposite Bailey Barracks (our reference 12045467)

Closes 10 Oct 2022

Opened 15 Sep 2022

Results expected 13 Oct 2022

Feedback expected 20 Oct 2022

Overview

A Prunus avium (commonly known as a Cherry tree) has been identified on Greenhill Parkway S8 (adjacent to street lighting column 22), opposite Bailey Barracks, as decaying.  There are Ganoderma brackets at the base of the tree and the stem and roots of the tree have decayed.  Therefore, the tree has become structurally compromised.

If removed, we propose to replace the tree with a Sequoiadendron giganteum (Giant sequoia) in a location close to the previous tree, in the nearby open verge (on the grassed area at the junction, moved forward 10 metres out of the closed canopy).

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
