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. Quite apart from being rare, the tree is home to the threatened white‐letter hairstreak butterfly. But it’s damaging a pavement, so it has to go. The city is special because of its trees, not its pavements.
