Jon,
         Have heard a few stories re Ash though they can be problematic at 
the best of times, fortunately access is open so should it need to be 
dismantled or turned into a nature tree a MEWP would be an easy option.

Rupert,
              My first thought was HF as there are no plants likely to carry 
Phytophthora nearby also the tree is likely to have been subject to abuse for 
many years prior to the development. It was originally classed as a B1 and 
from a visual amenity point of view would still be a B and as a 
representative of type would still be classed as Fair condition, fortunately 
the client wants to try and retain it.

Will

You might want to go onto arbrtalk and read some of the experiences of 
removing dead & dying ash..if you can't fell it or use a cherry picker you 
might want to consider an early removal. And if you could fell it, there are 
tales of pieces travelling if they fall to the ground. I wouldn't want to use 
the word "exploding" but it gives you a picture of what might happen.

 

I think the risk during removal becomes a more significant issue than the 
risk of tree & branch failure before that point..although leave it long 
enough & you can have both together. It's one of the reasons why the Ministry 
of Defence & Surrey Wildlife Trust have clear felled live ash prior to 
waiting for tree death.
