Alastair, I am talking in the extreme 3x3m front garden directly in front of 
a bay window.
I personally would not want to impose a TPO on the householder for the simple 
fact that it could lead to unnecessary correspondence, reports, 
administrative waste of time etc.. where the TPO Officer should have got it 
right during the review.

I disagree Ian, particularly as many trees now outlast the dwellings that are 
built nearby due to their feeble design life. Even if in thirty years time 
you need to remove the tree, it's still worth having it around for that 30 
years in many circumstances - granted not all.

…though some like a young Blue Atlas Cedar growing in the front garden, 
postage stamp size for example, although a great visual feature would likely 
cause serious issues to below/above ground structures as it grows into 
maturity and should not be included.
These need to be filtered out to avoid lengthy correspondence and reports. So 
this task is not as straightforward as it needs both an aesthetic as well as 
a practical head on.

If access needs to be arranged then maybe the trees don’t feature highly in 
the public domain then maybe TPO not appropriate!?

old Orders revoked and new Orders with mainly frontage trees. The logistics 
of getting into every property, notifying and arranging visits with owners 
and so on would take an immense amount of time.
