There were 5 responses to this consultation

100% agreement with fell
100% agreement with replanting location
40% agreement vs 60% objection to replant species

Grounds for objection to replant species were primarily that the proposed tree was not ornamental or flowering

One respondent asked for a like-for-like Cherry tree to be planted

One respondent asked for a Rowan tree to be planted as it was native

Discussed with street tree partnership and the decision was taken to proceed with a Japanese tree Lilac as the replant - it is an ornamental flowering tree and is not from the Rosaceae family so fulfils our strategic objective to reduce our reliance upon this family of trees on the highway network in Sheffield.  

Overview

A Prunus (commonly known as a Cherry Tree) has been identified on Walkley Terrace (outside 30) as dying.

An assessment carried out by our tree experts noticed that the tree was almost dead with no prospect of recovery

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 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
