There was 92.86% ‘yes’ / 7.14% ‘no’ for felling.

There was 92.86% ‘yes’ / 7.14% ‘no’ for replant location.

There was 7.14% ‘yes’ / 92.86 % ‘no’ for the replacement tree species and as such, this was taken to the Sheffield Street Tree Partnership (SSTP) meeting for discussion.  At this meeting, it was agreed that further thought will be given on the replant species by the SSTP.  Therefore, currently the replant works are on hold until the species has been decided.  The decision on the species will be made no later than 1st October 2023. 

In the meantime, works to fell the tree will proceed as planned.  




A Crataegus monogyna (commonly known as a Hawthorn tree) has been identified on Psalter Lane opposite number 190a, behind lamp column 41, as being structurally comprimised. 

An assessment carried out by our tree experts noticed that the tree has decayed where the historic stem has failed.  The tree is totally swamped by ivy.  

Once removed, we propose to replace the tree with a Betula albosinensis (Chinese red birch), which will be planted in the verge outside 70 Swaledale Road - opposite the driveway of number 59. The original location is unsuitable due to the competing vegetation.

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:
