Marrickville Council has removed an Evergreen Ash (Fraxinus Griffithii) outside 12 Salisbury Road Stanmore. Council gave the following reasons for removal –

  • “Large crack in main stem with severe cross-sectional fracturing across the trunk.
  • The subject tree presented an imminent risk to the public & property.
  • As a result of the hazardous nature of this tree, priority removal works have been completed.”

Council say they intend to replace the street tree during 2013 Planting Season, but do not say what species of tree they will be planting.
