Again I agree and formative pruning of young trees  is important and can
prevent future problems.

Yes. By not managing trees, especially from infancy, properly. Trees are
taken for granted, and the dangerous ones have most often been
abused--unfortunately, often at the hands of "professionals." But I have
made my share of mistakes--and learned from all of them.

The greatest value of listservs like this is in sharing our mistakes so the
benefit of hindsight can be shared and converted into increasing skills.
One of the most disappointing, if not frightening aspects of these
discussions it ego-driven defensiveness.

Sincerely,
Wayne

Very good point.

Are we creating more hazards?

That would strongly suggest it is far safer to keep the tree than to
put
somebody at risk felling it.

I guess these figures don’t include workers in the industry? Within the
last 10 years 24 tree workers died and 140 per year injured mainly
caused
by chainsaws and falling from height according to HSE.

I know this has been asked before but are there more up to date figures
for tree related fatalities than the 64 between 1999 and 2009?
That works out to about 1 in 10,000,000 based on UK population in 2010
of
63 million, However the 2020 population is reckoned to be 67,886,011,
which
could be taken to mean that the probability of death is now reduced by
about 1 in half a million.
Or have fatalities increased to keep in step?

More seriously, is it reasonable to keep quoting ten year old
statistics?
