We would have all seen these along the streets of Marrickville municipality. It would be great if they could all have a tree planted.

The following was posted on Marrickville Council’s Facebook page –

“Nominate a Street Tree. Tell us about that vacant tree pit or tree-less grass verge in front of your house, & Council will come & plant a tree. We are preparing for the 2013 annual street tree planting program & are looking for suitable sites to plant street trees. 

Send your request to council@marrickville.nsw.gov.au & provide the following information:

  • Address
  • ground surface (ie. Grass verge, concrete)
  • power lines above?

The suitability of the site will be assessed by Council’s tree management team & an appropriate tree species determined. Nominations close on Tuesday 30 April.

Thank you Marrickville Council.  This is a wonderful initiative.  I don’t think it would hurt to let Council know of other locations where tree pits are empty/covered with bitumen or of streets that need street trees either.  They can only say no.

Please spread the word as there is a good chance many won’t hear about this.  The deadline is only 2-weeks away & tree-planting only happens once a year.
