Overview

A Prunus Kanzan (commonly known as a Cherry Tree) has been identified in Market Square, close to the War Memorial as dying.

An assessment carried out by our tree experts noticed that the tree had progressive dieback and a loss of vitality. The trunk and buttress are colonised by Ganoderma decay fungi. Tree is therefore deemed to be at risk of deteriorating and failing in due course.

Once removed, we propose to replace the tree with a Liriodendron tulipifera (Tulip 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
