That tree health does not seem to have been affected from the (probable) 
digger that stripped out the roadside garden and damaged its base in 2007 but 
it might pay to take a closer look.

Just as an exercise, I intuitively zoomed in on Hobart, and here is the
first tree that I saw:
https://www.google.com/maps/@-42.8784786,147.3342905,3a,75y,188.82h,109.42t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sB2_tdY2-5JSAM31TD0Is8w!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

What can be discerned from this view? Try different view and different
photo dates?

One of the issues we were exploring today was the specification for a
windshield/drive-by specification.  I've raised this on here before, when
trying to find out whether anyone had actually written one.  It turns out
that, so far, no one has does (beyond that they will carry one out).



The straw poll I'd value your collective opinion on, is;



A driver and a spotter.  Both sides of the road driven.  At what speed do
you reckon a windshield/drive-by should be carried out to pick up 'Obvious
Defects'*?



For example, is driving at around 30mph going to reveal significantly less
obvious defects than driving at about 10mph?  Or significantly more obvious
defects than driving somewhere close to 50mph?



If you had to choose a speed limit, what would it be?



If you're uncomfortable posting your opinion on here, please email me off
forum.



As with all of VALID's publications, because it's a not-for-profit, when
this is completed I'll happily share with everyone under a creative commons
license.
