I don't know what those costs would be but he might plausibly argue for a
climbing inspector at regular intervals to check the thing, plus extra
visits after gales. OK the brace is a done deed, but comments in the Perrin
judgement about the irrelevance of engineering solutions might colour
matters.

If you think the installation is genuinely supporting the tree, then
the  TPO
cannot require the installation, so its condition is irrelevant unless
the
LA are offering to fund the ongoing maintenance of the brace. (And
guaranteeing
 the outcome of the installation?).

The 1994 review of TPOs was rejected by the Govt on the grounds that
enabling LAs to oblige TPOd tree owners to undertake maintenance work
was just  too
burdensome. (Mynors)

Its a bit more complicated than that, tree was braced in 2003 as part
of works following an unsucessful appeal to fell. The tree owner now
wants to fell the tree on the grounds of cost of maintaining brace.

There does not appear to be any obvious signs of the fork spliting
apart.

By the sounds of it non invasive rope bracing is not very good. I have
personally never been a great fan of bracing of any kind and have
never specified it.

Thanks for your all your comments and I hope you have a good xmas and new
year.
