Quoting "Wallbank, Alan" <Alan.Wallbank@xxxxxxxx.gov.uk>:
I come across this issue with protected trees on boundaries (- much
better if these aren't TPO'd ? -) where one neighbour applies to reduce
the overhang on their side only, and I want to see the tree balanced so
would like to say that it should be crown reduced globally not
Interesting to hear what others think...
For myself Alan I have very little interest in the notion of balance. Trees
are always modified by their environments - even the open grown tree is
shaped by a prevailing wind- and marked imbalances are almost as common in
nature as they are in towns. Unless the matter is utterly extreme, I'd say
the less pruning the better.
