Simon Green, Executive Director for Place from Sheffield City Council, said: “We are delighted that the court has agreed with the council’s case to have the tree injunction lifted. However, we have been clear throughout that we want to make sure that our work with communities on this issue is right, so we will not resume the full street tree replacement programme until we have had the court’s final decision. We will of course continue to assess our trees and replace those that are dangerous.”
