I think this is probably a storm in a tea cup. Somehow I can't see LPAs
going out doing BS5837:2005 surveys for local developers, the potential for
conflict of interest is too great and I think the developers would be
extremely wary of such a service. Plus, whilst LAs are big, Tree Sections
are small. I've just looked at a liability survey that will have two of my
staff trudging down country lanes for the best part of a week. I can't see
TOs being able to be out of the office for that long. All that remains are
the few private tree owners that have a tree in their garden and no TPO -
well there are not many of them down our way, and those that are tend to
pick a Tree Surgeon to give them advice anyway! It's a bit like high hedges
- big hoo haa. Fortune spent 'gearing up for the onslaught' massive anti
climax when not very much happened because people love to complain but they
don't like to pay for the privilege!

Looking to private work isn't 
about making use of over-capacity so much as building additional demand in
order 
to allow you to boost capacity and provide resilience.

Studying and understanding the industry from the other side of the fence
would be no bad thing either....And that's a criticism that applies to both
sides!
