Such a sad looking tree.

Such a sad looking tree.

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.
