Marrickville Council has given notice of the intention to remove a Cedar Wattle (Acacia elata) “inside” Camperdown Memorial Rest Park Newtown.

Council gave the following reasons for removal –

  • “Tree is in a state of decline with significant dieback, decay and damage from borer.
  • Tree is leaning and poses a risk to public safety.”

They say they will replace with a Rough-barked apple (Angophora floribunda), but not when they will do this.

The deadline for any submissions is Monday 28th April 2014.
