Dear All

This is prompted by the recent discussion on the risk of harm or damage to

inherent danger therein.

I was not thinking of the extremes that were highlighted but more the
marginal decisions and pose this question.

To create a safer, healthier environment through the better management of

The former in my mind/experience leads to more tree pruning.
The latter more an assessment of the overall value of trees,
including ecosystem services etc.

Sincerely Tom
