Four Robinia trees to be removed on the corner of Herbert and New Canterbury Road Dulwich Hill. By my observations, this is a popular place for people.

Four Robinia trees (and perhaps one power pole) to be removed on the corner of Herbert and New Canterbury Road Dulwich Hill. By my observations, this is a popular meeting place for people who were seeking the shade on this warm winter’s day.

Inner West Council (nee Marrickville) have given notification that they intend to remove 5 x Robinia (Robinia pseudoacacia) trees outside 366 New Canterbury Road Dulwich Hill

Council gives the following reason for removal –

  • “Trees to be removed as part of an upgrade project. They are in poor condition & at the end of their useful life.”

They say the trees will be replaced with “super advanced 400L container size tree Liriodendron tulipifera installed in structural soil to provide optimal soil volumes.”

I can have a guess at what “structural soil” & “optimal soil volumes” mean, but why not write the reason in plain English so that everyone in the community can understand?  Industry jargon always isolates & alienates those not in the industry & this applies to all industries.  The target audience is the community, not other arborists & town planners.

Of importance is our urban forest will not be increasing fast when five trees are removed to be replaced with only one tree.

The Liriodendron tulipifera is a deciduous tree native to North America.  It produces green/yellow flowers in spring & yellow autumn color before the leaves are dropped.  It grows in an upright form & can reach 20-metres in 10-15 years.   Liriodendron tulipifera are planted along the Marrickville Road shopping strip.

I went to have a look & could only see four Robinia trees in this location.  One was a power pole with a streetlight, so easily mistaken I suppose. Maybe the pole will be removed as well.

I wanted to call this post ‘A lost opportunity.’

In 2015 Marrickville Council did research to garner information about the urban heat island effect & the impact of heatwaves in Dulwich Hill.  They also created a Thermal Map, which showed the hot areas in Dulwich Hill.

Not only was New Canterbury Road nominated as ‘hot spot’ by the community, but the thermal map showed that this perception was indeed correct.  The corner of Herbert Street & New Canterbury Road is right up there in terms of excessive heat at between 32.9 – 36.8 degrees – the maximum heat shown in the thermal map.

The same corner was also in the second highest area of a study of the ‘population vulnerable to heat stress.’

So knowing that this location is really hot & is in an area of population deemed vulnerable to heat stress, Council only plans to plant one tree?  Seriously!

The location at corner of Herbert Street & New Canterbury Road has an unusually large streetscape space.  It’s not often Council gets an opportunity to work in public street space that is around 5 x 20 metres.  The corner juts out in a wide swoop.  Currently it is a wide space of concrete with the four trees, one pole & two bench seats & still leaving plenty of room that is open-air concrete.

To plant only one tree is a missed opportunity for Council to create something lovely to not only beautify the streetscape, but to also lower the heat island effect here.

I had difficulty taking photos of the trees that did not include people because they kept rushing into the space to sit on the seats or to stand in the shade.  At one stage there were fifteen people under the trees.  This shows that this is a popular meeting space for the community – another reason why more than one tree should be the upgrade project’s target.

A busy café is on this corner.  People buy something from the café & take it outside.  The café itself, does not seem to get relief from the afternoon sun.  In Sydney winter really only started yesterday after a summer-like autumn that broke all previous temperature records.  It was cold today, but still hot enough outside for people to be actively seeking shade.

This idea that we need deciduous trees for the winter months belongs to the pre-climate change past. Even the shops are despairing because of record low sales of winter clothing.

In my opinion there is room for five decent sized trees speed spread out over this site, plus landscaping works that incorporate the current seating.  Anything less means that Council knows the area is hot, but is not willing to take steps to mitigate the heat & make it an attractive & useful space for the community.   Such a shame.

The deadline for submissions is Monday 1st June 2016.

Marrickville Council gave notice of their intention to remove an Evergreen oak (Quercus ilex) in Hoskins Park.

They give the following reasons for removal –

  • “Tree has significant level of canopy dieback & deadwood & is in an advance state of decline.
  • The tree poses an unacceptable level of risk to the public & property.”

This is a devastating loss in my opinion.  The tree is one of the very special trees in Hoskins Park & likely would have been planted when the park was formed in 1938.  It has a beautiful shape & once had a large canopy.

Council says this tree will be “replaced with trees and understory from the Sydney turpentine-ironbark forest community as part of a combined Green Way planting initiative by 30 June.”  Unfortunately there was not a ‘Notification of Removal’ sign on the tree.

Council does not say how many replacement trees they will be planting.  They keep missing out on opportunities to declare the good work they are doing, which I do not understand.

The replacement turpentine-ironbark forest community & understorey is a good choice. This is an ‘endangered ecological community’ in the area & will support the great work re-vegetation done by the Friends of the Greenway.  Just standing beside the greenway one can hear the number & variety of birds that live in this small corridor.  It sounds great, as it should sound when there is habitat, food & water available.  More trees & understorey will only widen the area of habitat & improve  the lovely amenity of Hoskins Park.

The deadline for submissions is Friday 6th May 2016.

Last Friday I was notified by a resident that Marrickville Council had chopped down a number of street trees on Victoria Road Dulwich Hill nearest street for location reference is Nelson Street.

Sadly the trees on Victoria Street Dully are being removed without warning or consult!!   Healthy & young trees. Gone!  A lady I know that lives there, stopped them from removing the one at the front of her house by then they had removed about three or more. She was so upset!!!  She had called council & the guy wasn’t very helpful – tree team leader or something? So awful!! Apparently according to the resident, they were following a report from 2012. But that was the old trees. They were removed & replaced.
On Friday they removed the young trees that were planted as replacement!!!”

So I went to have a look today & found four stumps.  I am presuming these trees were 5-metres or less in height.  Marrickville Council chooses not to inform the community when they remove trees 5-metres or under, which I think is something that often causes anxiety, anger & distrust toward Council, as the above communication clearly shows.  Also, it gives Council carte blanch for tree removal, as the Marrickville Street Tree Inventory Report found that the average height for our street trees across the whole of Marrickville municipality is just 5.2-metres.  What’s 0.2-metres when choosing whether to inform the community or not?

What is left after the tree removal is a long stretch of nothing, but grass & the concrete footpath.  At least two families are upset about the removal of the trees here.  I hope Council plans to replace the trees this tree planning season.

What is left after 4 street trees were removed by Marrickville Council last week.

Tree number 1:

Marrickville Council has given notification of their intention to remove a Bracelet Honey Myrtle (Melaleuca armillaris) outside 583 New Canterbury Road Dulwich Hill.

They give the following reasons for removal –

  • “Tree is in decline with significant canopy dieback.
  • Lean presents a significant obstruction and is a risk to public and property.
  • The tree is unsustainable in its current condition.”

Council says they will replace with a Manchurian Pear (Pyrus ussuriensis) as part of the 2016 Street Tree Planting Program.

The Manchurian Pear is a deciduous ornamental tree that grows to approximately 9-metres tall by 7-metres wide. Their leaves turn red in autumn & they produce small white flowers in late winter to early spring.  The tree produces inedible, greenish-yellow, globose fruit up to 3 cm in diameter.

As far as I am aware these trees have no benefit to wildlife, though perhaps the bees like the flowers.

Gardening Australia says the following about Manchurian Pear trees –

“The tree has inherent branch weaknesses, which means that it can fall apart & in a home garden that’s a considerable safety problem. The biggest problem is included bark, which is where the bark grows into the junction between the branches, and means you don’t really get good, firm attachment. The result is that the branch has simply peeled off and broken. Although good bark is produced to heal the wound, it’s still an unsightly feature and unsafe when the branch breaks.
 Another problem is a V-crotch or an acute branch structure. It’s where one branch has grown quickly and with the weight of foliage it acts like a lever and that can easily lead to a break.”  See – http://ab.co/1DBD68U

The Bracelet Honey Myrtle tree is one of those old gnarly street trees that many love.  Unfortunately this tree is in decline, though it is not dead yet.   I wonder whether a tree growing in these conditions with only whatever rainwater it could catch could respond to fertilizing, watering & mulching.

I feel regret when a lovely old tree that has received very little care over its life gets chopped down before any attempts to save it.  I consider this a big loss, as it is one of the nicest street trees along this stretch of road.

To replace this food-producing native with an ornamental Manchurian Pear that does nothing for wildlife is a shame.

Tree number 2: A Small-leafed Peppermint (Eucalyptus nicholii) outside 16 Ross Street Dulwich Hill.

Council gives the following reasons for removal –

  • “Subject tree is in decline/dying.
  • Identified for removal under Street Tree Inventory 2012.
  • Tree in its present state poses an unacceptable risk to public and property.”

Unfortunately this lovely tree is not doing well. It is the last big tree in the street that seems almost bare of street trees.

Council says they will replace it with a Jacaranda (Jacaranda mimosifolia) as part of the 2016 Street Tree Planting Program.  Another loss of a native for an ornamental tree.

The deadline for submissions for both trees is Friday 14th August 2015.

Marrickville Council has given notice of their intention to remove a Small-Leafed Peppermint (Eucalyptus nicholii) outside 17 Eltham Street Dulwich Hill.

They give the following reasons for removal –

  • “Major branch failure during high winds resulting in approx. 40% loss of canopy leaving the tree unstable.
  • The tree in its present state poses an unacceptable level of risk to the public & property.”

Council says they will replace with a Chinese Pistachio (Pistacia chinensis) in the current 2015 Street Tree Planting Program.

The Chinese pistachio is native to China, Taiwan & the Philippines.  It is fast-growing, deciduous & puts on a red display in autumn. It reaches a height of between 6-10 metres.  Female trees produce berries that are attractive to birds.

The Queensland Government website says, – “Chinese pistachio (Pistacia chinensis) is regarded as an environmental weed in New south Wales & the ACT, & is also a potential environmental weed or “sleeper weed”  in other parts of southern Australia.”   See – http://bit.ly/190nZHG

It is beyond my understanding why Marrickville Council chooses to plant risky non-native trees when there are so many suitable Australian native trees.

The deadline for submissions is Friday 8th May 2015.

Such a sad looking tree.

Marrickville Council has given notice of their intention to remove a Small-leafed Peppermint (Eucalyptus nichollii) outside 17 Loftus Street Dulwich Hill.

Council gives the following reasons for removal –

  • “Tree is in decline.
  • Canopy severe dieback.
  • The tree in its present state poses an unacceptable level of risk to the public & property.”

I went to see the tree & it is almost dead.

Council say they will replace this tree with a Swamp Mahogany (Eucalyptus robusta) to be planted in the 2014–15 Street Tree Planting Program.

The deadline for submissions is Friday 1st August 2014.  I will not be putting in a submission.

I've not seen this before

I’ve not seen this before.  It’s great that Council still used sticky tape, even for trees they intend to remove.  Thank you.

Marrickville Council says, “Approximately 100 trees have been identified in the Street Tree Inventory as posing an unacceptable level of risk to public and property. These trees will be removed in April–May and replacement trees planted in May–June 2014.   Plantings will be guided by the Draft Street Tree Master Plan, which will be available for community comment in mid-April 2014.” 

The actual number is 109 trees to be removed.   I thank Council for including the reports.  I have listed the number of trees assessed as posing a low & very low risk of harm for interest.  This does not mean that the tree looks good.

The suburbs are as follows with a link to Council document, which locates the tree & provides a short report as to why it is to be removed.

CAMPERDOWN – 4 trees to be removed.  1 tree was assessed as low risk of harm & 2 very low risk of harm.   See – http://bit.ly/1dCgDGC

DULWICH HILL – The document shows that 17 trees are to be removed, but I could only find 16 located on the map.  6 trees were assessed as low risk of harm & 6 very low risk of harm.

One tree that I would not be removing is the poisoned Hill’s Fig outside 1 Margaret Street Dulwich Hill.  This is one of two mature Figs that were poisoned in June/July 2011.   Canterbury Council has a very proactive & powerful no-nonsense approach to tree vandalism.   They make the vandalized tree safe, even if just leaving the trunk & then nail signs to it that say, “This tree has been poisoned.”  This ensures that the tree is safe, does not reward the vandal & provides ongoing education for the community.  I’ll bet that people think twice about poisoning a public tree if they know they will be living with it for a decade.

This tree has a 1 in 1,440,000 risk of harm & a “low potential for failure,” so leaving it in place will not be placing the community in danger.  Any Council that makes a strong response is being proactive to prevent more vandalism in my opinion.

A Giant Honey myrtle outside 59 Riverside Crescent (photo on left) is assessed as visually poor, but looks like a nice tree to me.  All that is wrong with it is a codominant trunk (two or more main stems) & canopy extended branches.  I don’t understand why it is being removed, especially as the report says its risk of harm is “very low” at 1 in 59,040,000.   This article explains why codominant trunks & included bark presents a risk of failure – http://bit.ly/1nPiAJu

assessed as a low risk of harm & two a very low risk of harm.

Council plans to remove a very young Spotted gum (photo at left) that is not under powerlines, with a low failure potential & a 1 in 59,040,000 risk of harm because it has unstable roots.  How can they tell whether the roots are unstable & why not feed, mulch & properly stake it?  Surely the tree will stabilize itself given some support?   If it is girdled or the roots have been cut, then this is not good.   See – http://bit.ly/1dmfKrh

LEWISHAM – 13 trees to be removed.  Information is missing about one of the trees.  3 trees were assessed as very low risk & 2 assessed as low risk.

Finally a street tree outside 80 Victoria Street (photo on left) that the community begged be taken down is going to be removed.   Interestingly it is assessed at a 1 in 18 billion risk of harm, despite having a “very poor” structure & “heavy trunk decay.”   This is the least risky tree in the report.

I’ve seen this tree myself after residents wrote to me & it concerned me greatly.  The tiny tree next to it, which also was heavily affected by borers, was removed.  See my post – http://bit.ly/1gLC7kh  For the report see – http://bit.ly/1m0dZ2G

MARRICKVILLE – 24 trees to be removed.   I could only find 20 of these marked on the map. 6 trees were assessed as low risk of harm & 9 very low risk of harm.   See – http://bit.ly/OJB4vp  https://www.marrickville.nsw.gov.au/Global/Tree%20Management/Marrickville.pdf

NEWTOWN – 9 trees to be removed.  1 tree was assessed as a low risk of harm & another as a very low risk of harm.   See – http://bit.ly/1rfAaWm

PETERSHAM – 15 trees to be removed.  The document is missing information about one of the trees to be removed.  4 trees were assessed as very low risk of harm & 2 assessed as low risk of harm.

A Narrow-leaved Peppermint outside 25 John Street (photo on left) was assessed as “visually poor,” when to me it looks stunning in the photo.   On the next page is a photo of a very sick looking Brittle gum outside 53 Station Street that was also assessed as visually poor.  The John Street tree is assessed as a 1 in 590,400 risk of harm & “low risk” category, yet it is being removed because of damage to the trunk & major limb failure (a branch fell).  Damage to tree trunks around Marrickville LGA is very common.  I wonder whether reduction pruning could be an option to save this significant & what looks to be healthy asset?

Another Narrow-leaved Peppermint outside 19 John Street (photo on left) was assessed as visually poor, but also looks like a very

nice tree to me.  It was assessed as having a 1 in 5,904,000 risk of harm & a “very low” risk category, yet it is being removed because of some canopy deadwood.  To me, this is choosing to remove a healthy, safe tree instead of pruning the deadwood.   See – http://bit.ly/1gLDpfd

STANMORE – The map says 17 trees are to be removed, but only 14 are included in the report.  3 trees were assessed as low risk of harm & 1 very low risk of harm.

One of the trees, a Narrow-leaved Peppermint outside 95 Cavendish Street has been poisoned.  As I said earlier, I would not be removing this whole tree, rewarding the vandal & losing the opportunity to educate the community.  I suspect any new planting will not survive either.

Cavendish Street used to be an amazingly leafy street, but has lost so many tall & large trees over the last 4-years.  See – http://bit.ly/1dCiNpN

TEMPE – 2 trees to be removed.  Both were assessed as a very low risk of harm.  See – http://bit.ly/1rfAkgl

A new thing that I learnt through reading these documents is that a tree has problems if it has extended branches.  Maybe this explains why so many of our street trees look as though they are all pointing to the sky & have so few side branches.

The next step for the community is to assess the replacement species in the Street Tree Masterplan & be active in having a say when we are given an opportunity.

This is such a lovely tree. You can see the size of the street trees on each side.

Marrickville Council has given notice that they intend to remove a Narrow Leaved peppermint (Eucalyptus nicholii) outside 21 Eltham Street Dulwich Hill.

They have given the following reasons –

  • “Bracket fungal bodies observed in basal flare & codominant stem at 6 metres above roadside.
  • Mechanical wound to codominant stem with internal decay.
  • The tree has outgrown the planted location.
  • The tree poses an unacceptable risk to property & to the public.”

Council says they will replace this tree the 2013-2014 planting season & the species will be chosen by the Street Tree Master Plan.

This tree is lovely & such an asset to the street & to local biodiversity.  It’s a shame that it has been beset by so many problems.

It has bracket fungus on its roots – something I have not seen before.  It also has a large wound to the trunk, which looks like it was caused by a vehicle.   For such a large tree it has done well keeping itself compact at ground level & not affecting the footpath or fence.

While I was there the tree was filled with birds & lots of little lizards were sunning themselves on its trunk.  This tree offers much to support biodiversity to the area.

I will not be putting in a submission.  The deadline for submissions is Monday 16th September 2013.

Street tree outside 36 Dixson Street Dulwich Hill – not doing well at all.

Tree number 1:  Marrickville Council has given notification to remove a Yellow Gum (Eucalyptus leucoxylon) outside 36 Dixson Avenue Dulwich Hill.

Council gives the following reasons for removal –

  • “Tree has extensive crown dieback with excessive epicormic growth & presents an unacceptable risk to infrastructure & public safety.
  • Previously identified for removal in the 2012 Street Tree Inventory.”

They say they will replace this tree, during the 2013-2014 planting season (species to be determined by Street Tree Master Plan).”

The tree is not looking well at all.  I will not be putting in a submission.  The deadline for submissions is Friday 16th August 2013council@marrickville.nsw.gov.au

Tree number 2:  While I was in Dulwich Hill I found another street tree with a ‘Notification of Removal’ sign on it, though this tree was not included on Marrickville Council’s website as they usually are.

The tree is a Small Leafed Pepperment (Eucalyptus nicollii) near 279 New Canterbury Road.  Council’s sign read –

  • “The tree is in terminal decline.”
  • And will be replaced by a “Tallowood (Eucalyptus microcorys),” but not when they will do this.

This tree leans towards the road & is nearly dead.  The deadline for submissions regarding this tree has passed.  It was Friday 9th August 2013.

I thank Council for using sticky tape to fix the signs to both trees.

Tree number 1:  Marrickville Council has given post notification of emergency street tree removal – a Narrow-leaved Peppermint (Eucalyptus nicholii) at the corner of Consett Street & Hercules Street Dulwich Hill.  This tree was included in Marrickville Council’s list of street trees proposed for removal.

They gave the following reason –

  • “Failure of the structural root plate with a visible increasing lean towards power lines & roadway.” 

Council says they will replace with a Sydney Red Gum (Angophora costata) during 2013 planting season.

Tree number 2:  a Narrow-leaved Peppermint (Eucalyptus nicholii) opposite 22 Keith Street Dulwich Hill.  This tree is not included in Marrickville Council’s list of street trees proposed for removal.  The tree next door at number 20 is proposed for removal.

They gave the following reason –

  • “Tree is dead & leaning over roadway.”

Council says they will replace with a Weeping Lillypilly (Waterhousia floribunda) during 2013 planting season.

The tree was dead & needs to be removed.  I appreciate that Council used sticky tape instead of nails to fix the notification of removal sign.

Submissions can be sent to Marrickville Council at council@marrickville.nsw.gov.au or phone to speak to the Tree Asset Officer on 8595 2434.

This tree is to be removed in Riverside Crescent

Marrickville Council has given notice that they intend to remove a Narrow Leafed Black Peppermint (Eucalyptus nicholii) on the corner of Riverside Crescent & Balfour Street Dulwich Hill.

Council gives the following reasons for removal –

  • “Five branch failures have occurred in the tree’s upper canopy above the footpath
  • The tree has developed codominant stems with included bark, which is a structural defect more prone to failure under strong wind loading than tree’s free of this defect
  • The tree has outgrown the planting area & is a widely known species in the industry to being especially intolerant to disturbance around its root system.
  • The proposed footpath restoration works may cause the tree to fail at the root plate & prone to wind throw failure.”

Council says they intend to replace this tree with 3 Weeping Lilly-Pilly trees (Waterhousia floribunda) within the 2012-2013 annual tree-planting program “to compensate & increase the canopy coverage at this location.”

As soon as I saw the large bracket fungus I knew this tree had no chance of being retained as these indicate internal rot.  Unfortunately this is the only large street tree on this side of Riverside Crescent.

It is good to see that Council plans to replace with 3 trees for 1 removed.  If this practice continues where appropriate, the urban forest will increase.

I was disappointed to see that both Notification of Removal signs were stapled onto the tree.  I thought Marrickville Council had stopped this practice.

The deadline for submissions is Wednesday 31st October 2012.   I will not be putting in a submission.
