Wildlife Trust statement on Sheffield Street Trees

Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust have published a very comprehensive statement and guidance for the public. The Trust makes it clear they have engaged with the Streets Ahead programme in a positive way, but have found serious shortcomings.

The statement provides an excellent, even-handed and authoritative overview of the situation, acknowledging the real difficulties of tree management, particularly in the light of poor maintenance in recent years. But they also point to confusing decisions, poor communication and consultation and give a lot of advice to citizens who are concerned about trees in their area. Essential reading for anybody who is involved in the tree campaign.
