Hi David,

Yes I could, I state at the outset that I would be performing a VTA1, i.e. a 
ground based inspection only.  If I see something in aerial parts of the tree 
that I want to inspect further, I recommend to the client that a climbing 
inspection be carried out.

Regards, 

Mike Charkow

Hi Mike

<<Could you then defend yourself in court when one of these trees fails and 
kills someone, due to the presence of a critical defect that would have been 
spotted had the epicormics been removed?>>

Forgive the repetition, but perhaps I've not made at least one of the points 
very well.  I'll narrow it down to one, at the risk assessment level.

Could you then defend yourself in court when a branch or stem fails and 
killed someone, due to the presence of a critical defect that would have been 
spotted had the tree been climbed? 

Cheers

Acer ventura
