Mortality rates

Subject: Mortality rates

What are people's experience of mortality rates in urban plantings, both 
including and excluding vandalism?

I'm aware of a 26% figure from Johnston and Rushton, but does any one have 
any information to qualify what seems a surprisingly high figure to me.

This has come out of Edmund's question about planting costs - I've gone back 
to look at a breakdown of costs and am trying to build in a figure for 
replacements, but I need some idea of how many I might have to replace.
