Sorry, not Perrin ... it's the Poll case isn't it. Der!

Well yeah Glyn, if there's no target, then maybe we wouldn't be there
and maybe we don't need to plot the tree, although, if I spotted a
defective tree a might be inclined to note that, because there's always
a risk of liability if someone finds their way onto that bit of land.

Hi Ron,

<<If you plot and manage a group of trees you still need to satisfy
yourself that you've effectively inspected and dealt with any defects.
In other words you can't just plot them and not inspect them.>>

Why not?  What if there's no significant target?

<<The most appropriate case law is Perrin.>>

You sure?

Regards, Glyn
