Overview

A Fraxinus Excelsior (commonly known as an Ash) has been identified outside Castle Armstrong on New Mill Bank as having Ash Dieback.

An assessment carried out by our tree experts noticed that the tree is in terminal decline due to Ash Dieback.

Once removed, we propose to replace the tree with a Morus nigra (Black Mulberry) which will be planted in the large oval verge o/s 15/16 Sewell Road (resident request). Relocating due to steep embankment.

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
