An 80 foot Beech 7 metres from an existing property is unlikely to have 40 
years of life in front of it...... Therefore it isn't going to be 'A' 
category....

As for the other query, sorry Ruth, they're a flippin nuisance those District 
Councils aren't they? Won't there be some sort of boilerplate planning 
condition saying "as long as the trees aren't damaged?"

I was shown a permission granting permission to prune a branch off a Beech 
tree which would have literally removed 75% of the crown of the tree and left 
a 
massive great wound. But the permission said the work had to be inaccordance 
with BS3998. Result was the permssion was worthless and I told the client so. 
So he's writing for permission to fell the tree which is what he really 
wanted 
anyway.

Can you not claim the planning permission cannot meet its own conditions? You 
could cause a right stink which might just get the appropriate wrists 
slapped?

Bill.
