Consultation About Decaying / Structurally Compromised Tree on Storrs Lane S6 (our reference 12042897)

Closed 27 Aug 2021

Opened 6 Aug 2021

Results expected 30 Aug 2021

Feedback expected 31 Aug 2021


A Alnus Glutinosa (commonly known as a Common Alder) has been identified on Storrs Lane as being decaying to a point that it has become structurally compromised and is currently hung up on adjacent tree.

An assessment carried out by our tree experts advises that the tree's root system is failing.  

Ganoderma fruiting bodies were found at base.

The tree has developed a significant and progressive lean during the past couple of years and is now hung up in the adjacent tree.

Once removed, we propose to replace the tree with a Quercus Robur (Common Oak) in the large verge opposite 84 Moorthorpe Way due due to the orginal location no longer being suitible for replanting.

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:
