Hi Mark

Sorry, I've just found this in my drafts folder, and forgot to send it.

<<I state at the outset that I would be performing a VTA1>>

Great. Can you explain to me what a VTA1 is?  Absence an obvious defect as a 
trigger to look closer, what is it you're doing during a VTA1 that means you 
don't have to climb trees to see the tops of branches but you do have to 
remove epicormics to you can see the base of trees?

What do you do about hedgerow trees?  Do you insist that enough of the hedge 
is removed so you can assess all around the base of those trees, like you're 
doing with epicormics on Limes?

Cheers

Acer Ventura
