HI Michael

<<Do you need to change speed for season?  Presumably leaves will necessitate 
that you slow down?>>

I don't think so.  It's the trees that are lacking leaves which they're out 
looking for :-)

Also, this is an Active Assessment specification.  Passive Assessment will 
also be going on continuously.  Some of the main roads are driven 3-4 times a 
week as part of the highways inspections.  The people who do this have been 
(or are about to go) through obvious tree defect training.

<<How do you deal with the health and safety issue if you are driving 
significantly slower than the posted speed limit?>>

There's traffic management protocols for this kind of thing.  One of the tree 
risk team is an engineer who's specialises in managing the risk from rock 
fall, and they regularly do this kind of stuff.
