Our plans for street tree replacement on Rivelin Valley Road
Tree works are commencing on Rivelin Valley Road as part of the Streets Ahead street tree replacement programme. Of the 528 trees on Rivelin Valley Road only 23 are set to be replaced as part of the programme- around 4% of the total number of trees on the road.
Our household surveys told us that of the 54 households surveyed, only three were against our proposals for tree replacement and ultimately we know the majority of people in Sheffield are either in favour or impartial to our plans.
As part of the 25 year highway maintenance contract around 6,000 of Sheffield’s 36,000 street trees are set to be replaced by the end of 2017, with 600 additional trees being planted before the end of the programme.
Over 70,000 trees have been planted across Sheffield in the last three years, including those planted as part of the Streets Ahead contract and those in parks and woodlands included in the Council’s community forestry programme.
