Can anyone point me in the direction of some published information on the 
on the irritant properties of plane leaves, such as just what causes the 
problem, how serious is it, what PPE is appropriate if they have to be 
worked on whilst in leaf and if we have to fit our climbers out with 
respirators how do we convince the public that the trees pose no danger to 
them despite the fact that the climbers look like their kitted up to 
survive biological warfare.
