The Calvert Street tree vandal strikes again halving the size of 2 newly planted street trees along this section of the street.  Street trees are sorely needed here to soften this area.

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. I last wrote about this street in June 2012 –

Tree number 1
