A large tree at 1469 -1471 Botany Road, Botany, is to be removed. The works will be commencing on Tuesday 28 May 2019 and the work will be carried out between the hours of 10pm and 5am the next day.
The tree is defective, due to a fungi that eats at the heart wood of the tree, causing branch attachments to become weak. The tree lost a major limb and Council feels the tree is more likely to have another large branch failure.
A replacement will be planted some time before the end of winter and it is likely to be a London Plane tree.
