Consultation About A Tree Dying on Woodstock Road Outside 75 (our reference 12043308)

Closed 5 Nov 2021

Opened 22 Oct 2021

Feedback expected 9 Nov 2021

Results updated 3 Dec 2021

94.74% agreement with felling

94.74% agreement with the replant location (noting that the one respondee who objected had done so on the grounds that the tree should go back in its original place - which it is).

73.68% disagreement with the replant species

This tree was deferred to the Street Tree Partnership due to the high level of objection to the proposed replanting species.

12 specific recommendations were made by consultees with regards to the replanting species

11 of these repondees asked for Ulmus "New Horizon", the other recommended two other specific Dutch Elm Disease Resistant Cultivars.

Following discussion with the Street Tree Partnership, the job will be changed over to Ulmus "New Horizon".

Works will therefore proceed as planned, with a revised replanting species.

Overview

A Fraxinus excelsior (commonly known as an Ash tree) has been identified on Woodstock Road outside 75 as being affected by Ash Dieback. 

An assessment carried out by our tree experts noticed that the tree has Ash dieback and it is believed the tree is in terminal decline.

Once removed, we propose to replace the tree with an Ulmus 'Columella' (Dutch Elm Disease resistant cultivar of the Elm Tree) in the same place 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
