Here are more examples of street tree pruning done by energy company Ausgrid last week in Renwick Street Marrickville.    My thoughts on this, plus more photos can be seen at – http://bit.ly/1bc7QJO 

Thankfully, Marrickville Council left a comment on that post saying, A lot of recent pruning that has been done in the Marrickville area is very poor and not to industry standards.  ……..  Council is meeting with Ausgrid and its contractors this week to raise these issues and try to find a solution.”  [full comment at the above link.]

Chopped back so far under even the Optus cable.

There are 2 street trees in this photo.
