The following are photos of just some of the street tree pruning in Warren Road Marrickville done by energy company Ausgrid last week.  As you can see, there is more tree on the ground than actually left on the trees.  It’s very sad.  I doubt these trees will recover.

In a street where parking is at a premium, multiple parking spaces were lost over night until Ausgrid returned with their wood-chipping truck the next morning.
