Not really John - although the Blue Book talks about trees having visual
amenity to deserve protection with a TPO in practice there is no requirement
for this to be the case. I would bet that the majority of TPO trees are not
visible from any public place (fotunately the work required to prove this
would be impracticle so my money's safe).
