Aye but that's where the TPO legalities crop up. By our rules I don't
think the winery needs consent to fell the tree. The tree is dangerous
and so lopping/topping AND felling are exempt. The TO would need to
sneak up the tree in the dead of night and install a cable. Then he'd
have a chance to defend a case that the tree was no longer dangerous,
and as I said, I think the Winery could make a decent case of disputing
that. And anyway, the owner probably wouldn't need consent to remove/cut
the cable.

But the TPO does provide for a replacement so the winery doesn't expand
in any case.
