But they are on an island, Bill - maybe it hasn’t got there yet.
More seriously, weeping ash of this sort are rare and precious things - the 
Victorians used to top-work them on to a straight stem at a proper height; 
nowadays nurseries work them at 1.5 or so max, and you get horrible 
tent-shaped things.  They do suffer from decay in the lateral limbs coming 
off the stock, but often cope pretty well with it;  If I were the Council, 
and could get a legal agreement with the friends I'd let em get on with 
taking over responsibility for it.  Local Authorities are not 
infallible.............

Who’s going to tell them…?

(And what’s the chance they’d listen?)

Just goes to show, you can’t educate Pork!
