Marrickville Council has given post-notification of the removal of a Liquidambar (Liquidambar styraciflua) inside Maundrell Park Petersham at the Stanmore Road frontage.

They gave the following reason for removal –

  • “Failure of main stem due to inclined union, exacerbated by strong winds.”

Council says the replacement tree species will be determined by Council’s Street Tree Management Plan & will be planted during the 2014 planting season.
