Discussed with Street Tree Partnership

The obection on the replanting location cited that the tree should go back in the same location as the original tree/

As the new tree is going back in the same location as the original tree, this concern will be disregarded

As such, works will proceed as planned

Overview

A Tilia x europaea (commonly known as a Lime Tree) has been identified on Kenwood Road (outside 5) as dying.

An assessment carried out by our tree experts noticed that the tree had extensive Ustulina deusta decay at base,

The decay was in excess of probe length.

Due to the relative inability of Tilia to adequately compartmentalise Ustulina decay the tree is considered to be unsafe to retain on the highway 

Once removed, we propose to replace the tree with Ulmus Rebona (Dutch Elm Disease Resistant Elm tree) in the same location as the original tree.

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
