Sheffield’s trees – it’s our responsibility

Join over 12,o0o other signatories who are protesting about the way in which Sheffield’s trees are at high risk of being felled for no earthly reason other than that it’s easier, and therefore, cheaper for Sheffield City Council’s sub-contractor, Amey, to manage the built environment regardless of whether  or not the trees really do pose a risk to Sheffield’s human population.  The tree below is one of many trees threatened with the chainsaw.  This tree is one of several in the Psalter Lane area which definitely does not pose a risk to anyone, ie, there are no roots pushing through the years-old tarmac.
