100% agreement with all items.  Works will proceed as planned.



A Prunus padus (commonly known as a Bird Cherry Tree) has been identified on Greenhill Parkway opposite Bailey Barracks as being structurally compromised. 

An assessment carried out by our tree experts noticed that the tree is in very poor structural condition with twin stems parting at 2 metres.  The tree has also defoliated due to cherry ermine moth.

Once removed, we propose to replace the tree with a Styphnolobium japonicum (Japanese pagoda tree), which will be planted close to the same location of the original tree, in a clear space amongst young Liquidambars (Sweetgums) in the nearby open verge.

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:
