In practice it is easier for a tree officer to argue for Cat A and Cat B
trees, than it is for Cat C. That is the reality of a typical negotiation.

I note that Jeremy Barrel has got a small opinion in Hort Week (Gardener's
Chron) regarding the fact that it no longer states that "C category trees
will not normally be retained." I confess I've not read it that closely yet
(I'm waiting for a job to come along and force me to rewrite all my
boiler-plate to reflect the new guidance...) but I've looked for that
statement and no it doesn't say that any more.
Jeremy seems to think that this is mistake and I'm inclined to agree. That
said most of my experience suggests that most LPAs had ignored that nugget
anyway so perhaps it's not going to make that much difference.
