Overview

A Fagus sylvatica (commonly known as a common beech) has been identified outside 205 Meadowhead S8 as decaying.  

Meripilus decay fungi is present in the root system.  Fungi gradually decays supporting roots leading to complete failure. Ultimately the tree will become unsafe to retain on a busy highway. Our recommendation is that we proactively and safely remove the tree early.

Once removed, we propose to replace the tree with a Quercus robur (Common oak) in the same location as the previous tree (Outside 205).  

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
