Marrickville Council has given notification that it intends to remove a Jacaranda (Jacaranda mimosifolia) outside 12 Cardigan Street Stanmore.

Council gives the following reasons for removal –

  • “Poor structural condition.
  • Lower trunk decay extends into the tree’s root crown.
  • The tree is causing damage to private property and the installation of a root barrier is likely to result in further reducing the condition of the tree.”

They say they will replace with another Jacaranda to be planted in the current 2014 Street Tree Planting Program.

The deadline for any submissions is Friday 30th May 2014.
