Marrickville Council has given post notification of emergency street tree removal at 44 West Street Petersham.

Council said they needed to remove a Chinese Pistachio (Pistacia chinensis) for the following reason –

  • Active shear split between co-dominant stems resulting in an unacceptable risk to the public & property.

Council says they will replant another Chinese Pistachio street tree during 2013 planting season.
