Thanks to all who responded; some very useful information and opinion. I guess my main concern was about the question of reasonableness should anything happen but I am a believer that the chances of wrong place wrong time are miniscule; there are over 100 'dodgy' trees on the grounds but it would be too easy to say fell them just in case. There are already walks through the woods being installed for the slightly doddery residents (hence my initial concern - I found one resident staring into the bushes under a badly decayed tree picking up twigs for one of his lady friends) but some of the 'worst' trees are nearer the less used areas. Its lucky that there are two solicitors on the board of the charity that owns the wood - i'll let them do the worrying.

Apparently Simon Jenkins is trying to start a debate over the stifling
environment of the safety culture:



"His words are intended to open a debate on the subject and to encourage the
views from other voluntary organisations involved in public participation
and activity"



How you can participate I don't know but watch out, it might be coming your
way!
