Marrickville Council said – “Council regretfully identified the need to remove the public tree identified below.”
- A Chinese Tallow-wood (Sapium sebiferum) opposite 72 Salisbury Road Stanmore.
“The tree was recently struck by passing truck, which caused a 2 metre split in the main trunk. The remaining tree had structural damaged & was compromised beyond retention.”
“Due to the location of a service pit, Council will replace the tree with 2 new plantings on the corner of Salisbury Road & Bridge Road Stanmore during 2012-2013 planting season.”
I thank Council for notifying the community & am pleased they will be replacing one tree with two.
