100% agreement with the replant location.

66.67% ‘yes’ / 33.33% ‘no’ for replacement tree type.

Works to proceed as planned. 


A Prunus serrulata (commonly known as a Cherry tree) has been identified on Silverdale Road at the side of number 62 as dying. 

An assessment carried out by our tree experts identified that the tree is a very poor specimen and is dying off following a scaffold limb failure several years ago. There is approximately only 30% in volume of the crown left alive. 

Once removed, we propose to replace the tree with a Davidia involucrata (Pocket handkerchief tree) in the same location as the original tree.

Why your views matter

The Sheffield Tree Partnership have developed the Sheffield Street Tree Partnership 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.
