Time to Talk Trees. . .Streets Ahead Approach to Tree Management
When: Friday 7 June 2013
Time: 1pm - 4pm
Where: JG Graves Woodland Discovery Centre, Ecclesall Woods, S7 2QZ
As part of the £2 billion Streets Ahead programme, Amey is responsible for managing the 36,000 trees on Sheffield’s highways — those on roadsides and in verges. Our qualified tree experts have been working since October to carry out a full survey of these trees to identify any that are unhealthy and unsafe.
We know that many of your constituents may have questions about how Amey is managing the roadside tree population, particularly in areas where it is necessary to replace those which are unsafe and causing damage to pavements or road services.
To help answer your questions, we’d like to invite you to join us at our open day where our tree management team will be able to answer any questions you may have. As well as demonstrating the anagement tools used to assess the health of trees, they will also demonstrate a range of skills including tree climbing — so come prepared to give it a try if you are feeling adventurous. `
We look forward to seeing you there
