You are right Chris

<<My memory of reading reports of the original case was that this wasn't
really key at all. The key issue was the distinction between "making
lists of trees" (a phrase used, I think, by the original judge) and
carrying out inspections.>>

I wasn't clear on this but it was crucial in the appeal, for the defence
anyway.

One conclusion I would draw from this would be that anyone going through
such a process in the future would be well advised to choose their expert
carefully.
