What Happens When Amey Fells All of a Streets Trees (Sheffield Tree Fellings) - Video / Local / Sheffield

By: Anika_Walayat

Once Upon a Time there was a Street Full of Tree's, then Amey Came! This is a story of what happened to 1 street that was purged by the Labour Sheffield City Council's PFI contractor Amey of all of its trees. That illustrates what is happening across the city to hundreds of Sheffield's biggest trees that soak up vehicle pollution and releasing oxygen into the streets, which is why they were planted in the first place typically over a 100 years ago to help clean up Sheffield's toxic air environment of that time which given the volume of traffic remains just as toxic now as it was then.

What Happened to Thousands of Sheffield's Street Trees 2017 - Fellings Documentary / Local / Sheffield

By: N_Walayat

Formerly Britain's greenest city, Sheffield has become infamous world wide for the felling of thousands of the cities biggest and best street trees. This documentary answers the many questions of exactly what is happening and why and what are the likely economic and environmental consequences to follow the initial felling of 6,000 trees by the by Spanish Ferrovial owned Amey, as the first tranche of 6000 trees to be felled nears completion. The consequences of which Sheffield will pay a heavy price for decades to come, and not just economic consequences in terms of lost capital value to Sheffield's property market, but health and environmental consequences, as at a time of heightened climate change awareness, Sheffield City Council is going in the opposite direction to recommended climate change alleviation measures of greater tree leaf coverage so as to soak up carbon from the atmosphere and offer people and properties shade during the ever hotter summer months.

Labour Sheffield City Council Playing Game of Thrones with Street Trees / Local / Sheffield

By: Anika_Walayat

Amey / Labour city council's objective is to kill and remove at least 6,000 of Sheffield's biggest and best tree's in support of which Amey use excuses such as that the trees are displacing curb stones. Here tree expert Jeremy Barrell for the BBC One Show takes a close look at many of Sheffield's trees marked for death, and gives his damning verdict that none of the trees he has looked at need to be felled.

Sheffield is holding it's annual Tramlines Music festival weekend (Friday 21st to Sunday 23rd July), with music stages situated not just across the city centre but across many of Sheffield's best parks, pumping out music to cater for all tastes, and you don't have to pay for expensive wrist bands to enjoy the Tramlines experience as there are many free stages across the city such as in the Peace Gardens which we visited Saturday amongst other venues. Here's how the Peace Gardens music went down, where the crowd was about half that of last year, probably due to a poor weather forecast for Saturday. And remember that Tramlines continues Sunday across the city for its third and final day.

Sheffield Street Trees - Amey / Labour City Council Tree Felling 2017 / Local / Sheffield

By: Anika_Walayat

Here's a taste of what is happening to thousands of Sheffield's mature street trees on virtually every working day during 2017. Amey has been tasked with felling 6,000 of Sheffield's biggest and most beautiful street trees that in many cases that have taken over 100 years to mature. All that invested time is now being squandered so that the Labour controlled city council's contractor can avoid annual trees maintenance costs. Amey's solution is to fell the tree's, the consequences of which to many will only become apparent afterwards, as tree lined streets that bring a taste of the countryside to even inner city areas are increasingly become bland concrete wastelands. In fact the felling of thousands of large mature street tree's may be marking the end of Sheffield's house prices bull run as the value of trees taken 100 years to mature has now been lost to many streets.

By: Anika_Walayat

The Chelsea Road Elm tree is probably the most prominent of thousands of Sheffield's big trees that are under a death sentence by Amey / City Council. Already over 4000 trees have been felled and likely by the time Amey / Labour city council are finished another 4,000 could have been felled, about 1/4 of Sheffield's big tree populations binge wiped out! And where it will take several decades for any replacement saplings to fill the voids left on Sheffield's streets. So where once Sheffield had tree lined suburbs, now many streets are set to become barren concrete wastelands.
