Hi Tim
How about a continuous cover system (ideally with increasing cover)? Enabling 
some trees to be felled, then their carbon might get locked up in a product 
(if milled), partially incorporated into the soil (if chipped and mulched), 
or displace a fossil fuel if burnt (in an efficient boiler). 

ACT NOW

Yours hopefully
Simon

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
