How much per tree?

Have your say

Your article in The Star about the removal of trees in Rustlings Road, prompts me to ask why Amey has changed the criteria for removal from “dangerous” to “causing slight disturbance to kerbs or upheaval of footways”.

In the context of the general condition of Sheffield’s roads, one has to ask why the contractor is doing this?

The removal of a large tree near my home, was last year excused on the pretext that “it might cause damage to private property if the wind blew it down!”

On this basis, how many trees would survive?
