Is it really likely the cable brace will preserve the tree from
failure of >that weal fork? Is it sort or marginally likely that the

a 100% certainty that >if we cut the tree down it's gone?

Point taken and accepted. But the thread was touching on requiring the
owners of protected trees to undertake cabling work. You simply could
not do so without the sort of supporting data you accurately identified
as being absent from my posting.

And, as Edmund alluded to - work to dangerous trees is exempt from TPOs
under S198(6)(a) . That is lopping/topping/uprooting etc is exempt.
What's more, there is no 'as far as may be necessary' in there is for
S198 (6)(b) - the 'nuisance' clause. It may be that the minute you
recommend a brace or cable you concede the tree can be felled under the
exemption clause.

I may be wrong about this?
