Dear All,


Can anybody point me in the direction of cases involving the above,  I trying 
to get an handle on consented works whether that be CA/TPPO or planning where 
the tree works are  'rendered useless as an amenity'  as in the tree surgeon 
was  extremely poor and did not consider BS3998 or any other  standards that 
I can see!  And visual amenity was ruined.  What can jo public do when they 
don’t own the actual tree and not party to the contract - complaint to 
planning , breach of consent/ conditions............to lead to enforcement 

rendered useless as an amenity :-

Section 210(4) of the Act sets out that it is also an offence for anyone to 
contravene the provisions of an Order other than those mentioned above. For 
example, anyone who lops a tree in contravention of an Order, but in a way 
that the tree is not likely to be destroyed, would be guilty of this offence.

For the purposes of the Act, a person does not have to obliterate a tree in 
order to ‘destroy’ it. It is sufficient for the tree to be rendered useless 
as an amenity or as something worth preserving.

Hello all,

Up until today, recreational tree climbing on council trees was not an 
issue, usually restricted to me allowing local contractors use council 
trees for training in exchange for some free dead wooding while in the 
tree whilst using cambium savers/pulleys everywhere, this exercise 
would always be treated as a work site and all relevant H&S matters 
observed.

Today I was informed that I had 2 people climbing one of my Redwood 
trees, apparently they were fully trained and well equipped, though I 
was not able to observe this for myself.

As a result of this, I think it may be appropriate for me to form a 
policy around recreational tree climbing on council trees and was 
wondering if anyone out there had any experience or advice around this 
matter.

Cheers, Tim
