Marrickville Council has given notice that they intend to remove a Cheese Tree (Glochidion ferdinandi) at the rear of 36 Kent Street Newtown.

Council gives the following reasons for removal –

  • “Damage to private property & infrastructure which is not able to be overcome by any other means.
  • Tree has overgrown its location.”

There will be no tree replacement.

Unfortunately this gorgeous tree is causing terrible damage to the foundations of the house.  This is more than a crack & it is obvious that the tree must go.  There is no room for a replacement tree in this location.

The deadline for submissions is Friday 7th March 2014.  I will not be putting in a submission.

The tree is in a very small space & is lifting the concrete foundations.
