The dead tree in Keith Street Dulwich Hill

The dead tree in Keith Street Dulwich Hill

Tree number 1:  Marrickville Council has given post notification of emergency street tree removal – a Narrow-leaved Peppermint (Eucalyptus nicholii) at the corner of Consett Street & Hercules Street Dulwich Hill.  This tree was included in Marrickville Council’s list of street trees proposed for removal.

They gave the following reason –

  • “Failure of the structural root plate with a visible increasing lean towards power lines & roadway.” 

Council says they will replace with a Sydney Red Gum (Angophora costata) during 2013 planting season.

Tree number 2:  a Narrow-leaved Peppermint (Eucalyptus nicholii) opposite 22 Keith Street Dulwich Hill.  This tree is not included in Marrickville Council’s list of street trees proposed for removal.  The tree next door at number 20 is proposed for removal.

They gave the following reason –

  • “Tree is dead & leaning over roadway.”

Council says they will replace with a Weeping Lillypilly (Waterhousia floribunda) during 2013 planting season.

The tree was dead & needs to be removed.  I appreciate that Council used sticky tape instead of nails to fix the notification of removal sign.

Submissions can be sent to Marrickville Council at council@marrickville.nsw.gov.au or phone to speak to the Tree Asset Officer on 8595 2434.
