Well what might those unintended consequences be, Bill, or are they in the 
class of unknown unknowns? I can imagine you might get trees in the wrong 
places, but nothing new there, and it keeps a stream of jobs for those who 
make a living from tree work. The great thing about it is that it is 
straightforward sensible and easily understood. The sort of common sense 
policy a Tree Commission might come up with if it was composed of intelligent 
lay people. And certainly in my municipal experience, tree planting has been 
neglected ever since budgets became a problem, sometime around the Thatcher 
years of compulsory competitive tendering.

Deep down I agree with you though, if something can go wrong then it 
certainly will.

And off-hand I'd be wary of instigating 2-for-1 or 6-for-1 policies as it's 
almost bound to lead to unintended consequences.
