LEMON SCENTED GUM OUTSIDE 139 CAMBRIDGE ST STANMORE
In my opinion, this tree should have been on a Significant Tree Register. Residents said it was causing damage. It was about 100 years old. The trunk measured 2.5 metres & equates to approx 388.2 kg CO2 storage per year & the tree was very healthy
DEADLINE: 26th October 09
OUTCOME: 17th November – the tree is to be cut down. 8th December 09 – A motion put to Council by Marrickville Greens to explore other options to save the tree was defeated. The tree will be cut down.
