Inner West Council have given notification that they have removed a Small-Leaved Peppermint (Eucalyptus nicholii ) outside 73 Station Street Petersham.
Council gave the following reasons for removal –
- “Tree was in poor condition with structural root instability.
- Active termites & advanced internal decay at base.
- The tree posed an unacceptable level of risk to the public & property.”
They say they will replace this tree with a Spotted Gum (Corymbia maculata) in the 2017 Street Tree Planting Program.
