<<As to the question: if a dog bites someone it get's a warning, if it

me a tree shedding a major limb is a bit unfortunate, shedding two (on

seperate occasions, with the second not being as a result of the first
one  hitting 
it) is starting to look iffy. 'A history of branch failure' even. I'd

Hi Bill

I know you know this, but you have omitted the all important point
that a 'history of branch failure', is only significant if there is a
significant target, or the risk of significant harm is unreasonably
high.  In this context, surely the dog bite story is a bit shaggy.
