'Society grows great when old people plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.' Society falls down where that legacy is pillaged.

As a previous resident of Sheffield of over 5 years, I was smitten by how the city's leafy suburbs and parks blended together. The fact that healthy trees, which are of little danger to people and properties are being cut down, for no other reason good reason, than it fills a multinational corporation's pockets, is deeply disturbing.

Desperately sad what is happening in Sheffield with the beautiful trees, and lime are one of the loveliest. Beautiful fragrance in spring and an attraction to bees. Sheffield council are totally out of order over this - please accept my sympathies.

I love living in England and the trees are some of the most beautiful and sacred parts of it. They are part of our earth that should be revered and protected. Do not cut them down. They are essential to our lives.

Sheffield City Council have failed to use engineering solutions included in the Streets Ahead Project. Failed to listen to recommendations of the ITP and failed to listen to local resident objections. I am also opposed to the felling of the Western Road Memorial Trees

I'm signing because there are better ways to maintain trees other than mass culling. This is purely an economic strategy. Shame on you Sheffield Council for allowing such a contract to exist with Amey. You should have included clauses to prevent this. It's the lowest cost for the biggest profit and who can blame Amey. They're only in it for the money. Why wouldn't they rip up established trees to plant saplings, when saplings are so much cheaper to maintain?

Trees are the lungs of the world and all I have seen and read about what’s going on in Sheffield is appalling and unecessary .

It's disgraceful and largely unnecessary. Sheffield Council are chainsaw mad.... My road (Hawksley Avenue) looks a shadowy of its former self and the pavements are still terrible despite lopping down the beautiful trees. Are they going to rename all the 'Avenues' in Sheffield as it does mean 'tree lined road'...

Thanks for adding your voice.
