Sheffield City Council, UK: Save the Sheffield Elm

Sheffield City Council, UK: Save the Sheffield Elm
  
  

 


Why this is important

In the midst of its ill‐informed and deeply unpopular campaign of felling trees across the city, the council, in its wisdom, has decided to remove a much loved and very rare elm tree.

The city is special because of its trees, not its pavements.
