I don't disagree with this Paul. It's a judgement thing. It's just, that
if you're standing there looking at a defective tree then why not make a
note ... Otherwise, what are you doing standing there looking at a tree
where you expect no-one to go?

I understand to a point your defect led approach, but ask you to
consider the probability of significant harm from a tree on a piece of
land that is rarely used. That probability may be one in a billion or
more. Are we as Arborists not independently objective in our assessments
and therefore suggesting that financial resources are better spent

My lord, is that the time........
