Mike,

Can you please desist from airing your concerns with David in public
please, it's most tiresome and a waste of everyone's time, thank you

David,

I have explained many times before that I am not risk-averse, and nothing
I have said in this thread should have given you cause to think so; please
stop trying to give me that label.  This seems to me like yet another
example of your obfuscating the issue when you are faced with something you
can't competently respond to.

<<I'm not sure that there's much need for a discussion on semantics.  To
my mind our job is to look at a tree carefully (inspection) and assess any
potential defects or symptoms of defects (assessment) to quantify - to the
best of our ability - the risk.  It's all part of the same process.
However, we do need to find the potential defects in order to be able to
assess them.>>

I'm sure there's absolutely nothing I agree with here.

Thanks.  It's been a useful further exploration of what I think is
risk-averse, hazard-driven thinking that often comes with managing
secondary risk (the risk of a claim against the 'inspector') with hindsight
bias.  Rather than managing the primary risk (from tree failure) which the
duty holder is responsible for.  It demonstrates why the duty holder having
a strategy that tells us what 'our job is', is so important.

Cheers
