Such a loss.  I have admired this tree with friends on many occasions.  Its bark was perfect habitat for insects and microbats.

Marrickville Council has given notice of their intention to remove a Southern Blue Gum (Eucalyptus globulus) in Enmore Park Marrickville.

They give the following reasons for removal –

  • “Tree is dead.
  • The tree poses an unacceptable level of risk to the public and property.”

I noticed this tree around a month ago. It is a particularly interesting & beautiful tree. I personally would like to see another of the same species as the replacement tree.

Council says they will decide what to replace it with “Subject to upcoming Open Space Master Plan 2015/16. To be planted as part of the 2016 Street/Park Tree Planting Program.”

The deadline for submissions is Tuesday 25th August 2015.
