As it was in 2010 – these trees were home to thousands of small birds. The shadow shows that the trees were pruned 1-metre away from the wall of the building.

2015 - Marrickville Town Hall almost denuded of trees.

And today - four new Poplar trees.

Last week I noticed that Marrickville Council had removed all the remaining trees alongside Marrickville Town Hall on the Petersham Road side.

Today I drove past & saw that four advanced size Poplar trees have been planted in the garden beds.

It is my understanding that Poplars were to be planted along Petersham Road as street trees, so perhaps the community will get lucky & get street trees as well. There is certainly room for more trees.
