Planned Council tree works

Scheduled tree mainteinance

Council’s Tree Contractors will be undertaking scheduled tree pruning maintenance works at Leichhardt Oval, Leichhardt Park adjacent to Mary Street Childcare and within the Carpark of LPAC from Wednesday 25 May – 3 June 2022. Pruning works includes removal of deadwood, canopy lifting, providing clearance to pedestrians, vehicles, buildings and carpark lighting.

Traffic control will be in place in locations where required for the duration of works. Sections of carparking at the entry to LPAC and larger carpark will be impacted during the scheduled works.

Tree removal works

Trees are one of our most important natural assets.

Inner West Council conducts cyclical maintenance of its street trees. This includes pruning works to improve tree health and structure, remove deadwood, and allow for clearance for buildings, pedestrian and vehicle traffic.

Removal of trees is seen as the last option – Council will always look for other management options first. Unfortunately in some cases and due to risk to public and property, removal may be the only option. Any tree that is identified for removal will have a notice affixed to the tree.

Please note that Council does not prune trees for power line clearance. Ausgrid is responsible for pruning street trees in these circumstances and sets out the required clearance for its power lines. Visit the Ausgrid power line clearance page for more information and planned trimming dates.
