Tree Protection Orders added

The green trees on the map indicate Sheffield City Council’s (SCC’s) Tree Protection Orders (TPOs), mostly trees on private land that can’t be felled without planning permission.

Unfortunately that data on the SCC website is very vague and it’s not possible to pinpoint most of the tree locations accurately on the map, but this layer of the map gives a general picture of the protected trees across the city.

At present it shows around 25% of the TPOs, it’s time consuming to convert the data to a suitable format as the text does not follow a consistent format so every TPO must be scrutinised and chopped up manually.


New Amey planned fellings added

Thanks to detective work by James Jefferies we have added a further 140 planned fellings to the map. However it’s not complete so keep looking out for the felling notices on trees and add them to the map. Several new entries from members of the public this week.
