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.
