I don’t think that’s the point Bill.  The need to impact the perception on 
tree value and the disconnect with nature within society needs to change.  
Such incentives are positive steps towards that end, and also provides some 
signs that the councils are listening to their community. How effective those 
strategies will be, and how they evolve, is up to us, and by us I mean 
everybody.   Council should be leading by example reflecting the needs of the 
community they represent.  

Good work Tim, if you need any help/support just let me know, I expect you 
would have spoken to Howell?

I'd love to see some figures to prove that a moratorium on tree felling would 
make even a slight difference to the climate emergency Tim. And some figures 
to prove that such draconian action didn't actually discourage people from 
growing trees would be useful as well. I don't really believe that this 
situation is going to be improved by Governments/Local Authorities issuing 
edicts, it'll be solved by Jo and Joanna public deciding to act. (Assuming it 
can be solved of course.)

Good morning/evening all.

Like a number of other local authorities and governments around the 
world, my particular council has announced a climate emergency. I am 
currently working on updating our tree strategy though this will 
likely take some time, therefore I am interested to hear if any local 
authority tree officers/arborists have used such a declaration to 
strengthen their position and if so how. I'm thinking along the lines 
of a moratorium on the removal of all trees growing on council land 
unless the removal is safety related. Such a move would strengthen my 
argument when faced with residents requesting that a particular tree be 
removed due to causing a nuisance.

All comments welcome (unless it includes drive or cycle by assessments!).

Cheers, Tim
