Re: Network Rail - Between 10 and 50 000 leaves per tree

when working for ADAS we carried out the national lineside survey (my bones
have yet to recover). As part of this survey we assessed the species (and
quantity) of problem leaf fall trees for each chain, up and down. This
provided a score for NWR to know where their problem areas were located.
I'd be interested to know if that survey has informed any of the decisions
that have led to this unfortunate situation.

I have been asked the questions 1. Is Network Rail planning felling in
Nottingham? And 2. Would the City Council serve a TPO to control the work?
I can imagine the same questions are being raised across the country.

The second answer will be influenced by legal advice and political
imperatives, but in respect to the first, does Network Rail have finalised
programmes of work from one region to the next? Maybe if you're there Neil
you could help me with this, or direct me to the relevant party in the
organisation?

A certain amount of railway felling has been done here over the years
without generating much excitement.
