The street tree in Davis Street Dulwich Hill to be removed

Marrickville Council has given notice of their intention to remove a Bottlebrush (Callistemon viminalis) outside 8 Davis Street Dulwich Hill.

Council gives the following reasons for removal –

  • “Tree has had a major branch failure leaving remaining stem unsound.
  • Tree is in a state of decline with extensive internal decay and damage from termites.
  • Tree poses a risk to public safety.”

Council says the replacement species “will be determined by Street Tree Master Plan 2014,” but not when they will plant the tree.

I looked up the Street Tree Master Plan & Davis Street is part of the Dulwich Hill West Precinct. Eucalyptus eximia & Acmena smithii var. minor are planned for this side of the street.

I will not be putting in a submission.

The deadline for submissions is Tuesday 28th October 2014.
