Hi Bill, I'm only looking at the potential for implementing this on council 
trees growing on  council owned or administered land, not privately owned 
trees.

Cheers, Tim

Forgive me Richie; we're in the middle of an election in the UK and not
believing what our political overlords tell us is routine. I just
don't envisage many people accepting their elected or paid officials
instructions in this way. In North Korea it might be different, but Boris
Johnson/Donald Trump/Jacinda Ardern telling us (average westerners) to do
something is likely to achieve precisely the opposite. There is no
incentive in an edict of the sort Tim seems to be proposing. Personally I'd
pay more attention to Greta Thunberg than my local or national Politicians,
and that wouldn't be much.....

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
