I don't remember that but the comments about risk to contractors got me
thinking.

We have a very low risk of ha or damage to property and we are trying to
get it to close to zero.

We are not considering the impact to health and mental health of the loss
or reduction of trees and we are not considering the risk to the
contractors doing the work.

The last contractor death I can remember was in Croydon.  The guy gut his
neck while up a tree, I believe doing a reduction rather than felling an
obviously decay and compromised tree. There was another one in south Lomdon
somewhere I think.

Just got me thinking are we looking at the big picture or focusing in on
the tree surgery straight away.

Dear All

This is prompted by the recent discussion on the risk of harm or damage
to
property from trees against the risk of commissioning tree work and the
inherent danger therein.

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

Is our aim/objective (or another descriptor to suit) to;

The better management of trees

Or

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

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.
