Bad news – 2 new street trees located on Calvert Street outside 39 Gladstone Street have been snapped in half. All the other street trees that Marrickville Council have planted along Calvert Street a month ago or so are untouched & growing well, except for these two.
There is repeat tree vandalism in this neighbourhood. For this reason I would strongly encourage Council to think about doing a neighbourhood-wide educational campaign about the value of trees & the value of rate payers money that Council spends to plant trees.
