I like these three landmark trees in Railway Terrace that are on private property. I also like the verge garden in front created by Marrickville Council.

At the Council Meeting of the 20th November 2012 Marrickville Council sought permission to chop down 1,590 street trees that were dead, dying or nearing their Safe Useful Life Expectancy as identified by the recently completed Tree Inventory.

For a background, including a link to a summary of the recently completed Tree Inventory  http://bit.ly/PURYpe  & a list of the –

Most of the trees to be removed in the list supplied by Council are grouped in suburbs, but many others are scattered around the document.  I have tried my best to find all the trees & have listed the streets in alphabetical order for easier viewing.  Although I have checked, there are bound to be mistakes.  The original document can be downloaded here –  http://www.marrickville.nsw.gov.au/BridgeDownload/ITEM+21+ATTACHMENT+2+-+EXTRACT+FROM+STREET+TREE+INVENTORY+PREPARED+BY+HOMEWOOD+CONSULTING.PDF?s=2120557471,docID=78893.12
