It’s wonderful to see that Marrickville Council has planted nine new trees along the Princes Highway at Kendrick Park. Two of the labels read Banksia serrata & Eucalyptus sideroxylon rosea.

Four mature trees were removed along the highway side of Kendrick Park in November 2013.  At the same time a mature Fig tree in the park failed & was removed as well.  So it is great to see replacement trees, especially along the highway where they can help lower pollution from the passing traffic, as well as buffer the noise & the wind.

I am especially pleased to see trees planted in the empty spaces near the traffic lights.

Two new trees close to the traffic light.  This has been a bare patch for as long as I can remember.
