At the time of writing, the documents in support of this application were not available, however the location of this tree in the garden facing Merchants Rd, highly visible from the public realm and providing important public amenity, would normally justify protection with a Tree Preservation Order.
The mere fact that the tree is a non-native eucalyptus makes no difference, if the tree is not diseased or dying it should not be removed.
Looking at historic Street View images, it is clear that the tree has been managed historically. There is no reason why this cannot continue.
The tree should be protected with a Tree Preservation Order.
