This Broad-leafed Paperbark (Melaleuca quinquenervia) had already been removed.

Marrickville Council has given notice that they intend to remove a Broad-leafed Paperbark (Melaleuca quinquenervia) from outside 74 Corunna Road Stanmore.

Council gives the following reasons for removal –

  • “Internal trunk decay.
  • Active split in main co-dominant branch union.
  • Beyond correctional pruning.
  • Unacceptable risk to public, property and infrastructure.”

They say they will replace this tree with a Weeping lillypilly (Waterhousia floribunda)in the current 2014-15 street tree planting program.

I visited the tree today to find out that it had already been removed.  

The deadline for submissions is Friday 27th June 2014.
