I would say almost certainly! For some reason I have formed the view that 
Leylandii are notably windfirm, although they shed canopy from tight forks 
where those exist. I'm not sure that height in itself makes a tree, even a 
Leylandii, unstable.

No I have no experience of an appeal.

Leylandii hedge which is damaging the tarmac footway and which is tall
enough to have become unstable. However the owners were first notified
of the problem over two years ago and only now has a s154 notice been

Will the long period between originally saying the trees are dangerous
and the serving of the notice count against us in court as the trees
have not fallen over in the meantime!?
