Alice Street Playground

Almost dead tree in Alice Street Playground

Marrickville Council has given notification to remove a Flowering Red Gum (Corymbia ficifolia) inside Alice Street Playground – corner Alice & Hawken Street Newtown.

Council gives the following reason for removal –

  • “Tree is in decline & presents large amounts of die back in the canopy.”

They say they will replace this tree “as part of the Alice Street Playground upgrade,” but do not say what species of tree they will use.

The deadline for submissions is Friday 16th August 2013council@marrickville.nsw.gov.au
