This is how this section of Marrickville Road looked before these 2 Tulip trees were removed

One of the Tulip trees (Liriodendron tulipifera) planted by Marrickville Council in December 2012 was snapped off a couple of months ago. Council has since removed the tree. The original tree was around 10-metres tall & was removed along with another in March 2012 for civil works to upgrade the stormwater system. This demonstrates just how long it can take for the streetscape to return to what it was prior to tree removal.

Council did the right thing by replacing these trees, but the regular cases of vandalism do much to delay the return these objects of beauty to our streets.

This is something I cannot understand. Walk down Calvert Street Marrickville & you will see more street trees snapped off & this is despite Council replacing these trees at least twice.  Council also planted advanced sized trees in an attempt to prevent such vandalism, but even this did not deter whoever it is who appears determined to prevent the community enjoying nice green shady trees in Calvert Street.  I know some of the residents are very annoyed about this.
