Cable Bracing TPO'd Trees

All relevant comments welcomed!

If an application is received to cable brace a TPO'd tree, aside from
conditioning a non-invasive bracing technique is there any information that I
have missed that prevents such systems from being installed on such trees?

My concern is that by allowing consent to install such a system:

1: Can you condition periodic re-inspection of the cabling?

2: Are you not in some way admitting a structural fault with the tree and as
such, indicating it may be dangerous and possibly falling under the exemption
without the cabling being installed?
