NEW TREES FOR OUR COMMUNITY

NEW TREES FOR OUR COMMUNITY
 
On Monday 18 November Marrickville Metro will be removing and replacing eight Lemon Scented Gum Trees and two Narrow Leaf Mint Trees from the southern side of Smidmore Street. Due to numerous factors, including the age and health of the trees and the impacts associated with construction, the NSW Department of Planning determined that removing the 10 trees and replacing them with 20 new trees would be the safest option and, in the best, long-term interests of the community.
 
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
 
By late 2020, we will be re-planting 20 new, mature trees in their place. Including 11 Spotted Gum Trees, 5 Water Gum Trees, 2 Kauri Pine Trees, 2 Weeping Lilly Pilly Trees; increasing the total tree population on Smidmore Street by 100%. We will also be introducing a further 3,000 new plants in our landscaping works.
 
The Lemon Scented Gum Trees and Narrow Leaf Mint Trees will be logged, milled, seasoned and donated back to local community projects.
 
Tree removal works will take place on Smidmore Street from Monday 18th November to Wednesday 20th November. Noisy work will be conducted between the hours of approximately 7pm – 1am.
