Discussed with Street Tree Partnership

As the replacement tree species meets the strategic objectives of the Street Tree Partnership Strategy and is appropriate to the location, works will proceed as planned

Overview

A Malus sp (Crab Apple Tree) has been identified on Rochester Road outside 42 as being structurally unstable. 

An assessment carried out by our tree experts identified that the base of the tree was decayed, the stem is leaning, approximatley 50% of the stem bark is necrotic and the tree has also been previously topped meaning it is a very poor specimen.

Once removed, we propose to replace the tree with a Syringa reticulata (Japanese Tree Lilac) in the same location as the original tree.

Why your views matter

The Sheffield Tree Partnership have developed the 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.
