Marrickville Council have given notification that they intend to remove the following public tree –

Eucalyptus sideroxylon (Red ironbark) at 243 Old Canterbury Road (Maddock St frontage), Dulwich Hill

Maddock Street Dulwich Hill

They give the following reasons for removal –

  • An independent arborist inspection has identified the tree presents an unacceptable hazard to the public due to:

–       major structural fault at co-dominant stem union; major stem wound.

Council says they will replace this tree with a Eucalyptus sideroxylon (Red ironbark), but don’t say when they intend to do this.

This tree was in a poor state. I will not be making a submission. The deadline for any comments or submissions is Friday 21st October 2011.
