I was paraphrasing NTSG and unintentionally changed the meaning ever so 
slightly.  To be honest I didn't understand the use of 'may' in their 
sentence and so changed it to something that made more sense to me.  Anyway, 
this is ever so slightly nit-picking.

Yes, every tree is a case on its own facts; that should be obvious.  But 
there are lessons to be learned from every tree that can be applied to the 
way we carry out our jobs.

Re your comments on 'key facts', I can't comment without any further 
explanation on what you are referring to.

NTSG
"...that some trees in locations with high levels of use (generally to be 
determined by landowner or agent) MAY warrant more frequent and thorough 
inspection than trees in other locations."

Mike Charkow
"...that trees with high occupancy levels SHOULD be subject to a more 
thorough inspection; I agree with this."

But you've changed 'may' to 'should' so you can agree with something the NTSG 
hasn't said.

The sentence preceding the quote you used are really important as well.

"It is a case on its own facts."

Two of the key facts are demonstrably not real facts.

Cheers
