When I've given advice on site that what they are proposing will
likely be refused, I give it to them straight and also tell them why.
I also tell them of their appeal rights. So for these refused apps,
I'm not sure why I don't get appeals. Maybe it's because they don't
have Bill advising them! Sorry Bill, I couldn't resist that.

Maybe it's because I've already advised them it would get refused?
I rarely have to appeal applications to prune, in fact I can't think of one,
and honestly I appreciate knowledgeable TOs who would back up my appraisal of
how a tree should be pruned. I have had (very occasionally) Officers (not
Arbs) agreeing with the client who says "you've not taken enough off." As I
say, we're all on the same side.
I've got an appeal coming up, the TO agrees with me; the Wellingtonia isn't
much cop and in a ridiculous position, it's only the Politicians who've
rejected the proposal.
I too would endorse Dom's presentation on the new 3998, despite my doubts as
to its practicality; I'd be interested to know if "it's impossible to prune
adequately while sticking to the Standard so I'm going to have to fell it"
has yet been used as a reason for removal. The debate about whether it's best
to prune or remove and replace is not resolved by the new 3998, although it
might have been moved forward.....
