I kind of think that focusing on the budget as being the cause of some type 
of inspection is the wrong way round.  In fact minimal initial surveys are 
entirely compatible with the low risk of harm from trees; in other words only 
go full on when there is some justification.

 David,
 Julian
 expressed concern that tree risk could not be adequately
 evaluated from a walk-by inspection. You responded that
 it's a matter of degree and expediency, and went on to
 be rather dismissive of the concern.
 
 Do we in fact have confidence that
 'budgetary constraints' would be an acceptable
 defence if a tree inspected in a walk-by caused harm (if
 arising from a defect only visible from the unseen side of
 the tree)?

 Hi
 Julian
 
 Though I appreciate
 you taking the time to make your comments.  Unfortunately,
 as I started to go through them point by point, and began to
 work on a reply, it dawned on me that right from the first
 sentence there's almost nothing you've written with
 which I agree.  On some points you're demonstrably
 wrong.  And even on the few marginal ones, I struggle to
 see the value to either of us, or the forum, of trying to
 pursue this.  In my draft to date reply I'm contesting
 almost every line you've typed and it's just going
 to end up with one of the those threads where I quote you 10
 times and reply, and everyone will lose the will to live. 
 Sorry.
 
 Cheers
