Marrickville Council has given notice of their intention to remove a Small-leafed Peppermint (Eucalyptus nichollii) outside 17 Loftus Street Dulwich Hill.
Council gives the following reasons for removal –
- “Tree is in decline.
- Canopy severe dieback.
- The tree in its present state poses an unacceptable level of risk to the public & property.”
I went to see the tree & it is almost dead.
Council say they will replace this tree with a Swamp Mahogany (Eucalyptus robusta) to be planted in the 2014–15 Street Tree Planting Program.
The deadline for submissions is Friday 1st August 2014. I will not be putting in a submission.
