Planned Council works

Removal of trees is seen as the last option – Council will always look for other management option first. Unfortunately in some cases and due to risk to public and property, removal may be the only option. Council aims to increase our urban canopy and so, where possible, it will always replace the tree with a selected from the Street Tree Master Plan. Any tree that is identified for removal will also have a notice affixed to the tree.

Removal and replacement of trees at Marrickville Golf Course

Council has identified the need to carry out the following works to trees within Marrickville Golf Course:

  • Tree removal – includes the removal of several dead trees or trees present significant defects and/or structural issues
  • The creation of habitat trees – where trees are reduced down to safe limbs and boxes and hollows are created for use by native fauna
  • Tree pruning – to remove defective or dead branches to reduce risk

All trees to be removed will be replaced (and more) as part of a planting program to be developed in collaboration with Council, Marrickville Golf Course and the community.
