Sharon,

Sounds like a good idea. I suggested a similar thing to my old boss a
few years back when we had issues concerning 'misunderstandings' between
tree officers and contracters. I was told that they had tried it and
would never do it again because (a) Nobody likes to be told that they're
not doing it right, (b)It was used by some to pick an argument with the
TO (c) It was used by others to pick an argument with their competitors.
Apparantly, what should have been a constructive discussion ended up as
a forum for nit-picking and oneupmanship. Sad,... but then the tree bods
in your area might be above that.

How about running a bi annual Tree surgeons forum and having a session
on interpeting specs and trees and the law?

We seem to be suffering a serious decline in pruning standards to TPO
trees - it doesn't help that our own contracted out grounds
maintenance are equally guilty. I'm sure you are aware that the same
specification can be interpreted well or appallingly by two different
contractors.
Although, the consents we send out say that all work must be carried
out to BS3998, the chances of succeeding with punitive action if it is

not seem very slight to negligible. Has anybody any suggestions how we

can improve the situation? We do not offer any grants and we do not,
and do not intend to, operate an approved contractors list
- again, it doesn't
help that some of the appalling work is being done by an AAAC.
