I have dealt with just such a request to remove a TPO tree quite recently, 
Bill. There had been a burglary resulting in much loss of jewellery, which is 
obviously a terrible thing to happen. The friendly local crime prevention 
team had recommended removal of the tree that was located in the front garden 
some 20 metres from the dwelling at roadside. I pointed out in my refusal 
(quite reasonably I thought) that if you are relying on the absence of a tree 
to prevent burglary then you probably need to address the security of the 
building itself first.

If they want people to pay attention to them surely they should be free.....

As it happens, I was involved with a ludicrous case where the local 
constabulary's "Architectural Liaison Officer" wanted the back gardens of a 
number of properties to have no access. Presumably if there were no garden 
gates then the local ne'er-do-wells wouldn't be able to access said 
properties for whatever misdemeanours they might seek to commit. I was 
obliged to point out that as the said gardens would contain a number of 
protected trees then when the time came for tree works, all the equipment 
that might be needed would have to be carried through the houses, and 
furthermore, all the debris would have to be removed through the properties 
as well.

I've also lost count of the number of times I've been asked to remove trees 
because the Police have reasoned that trees provided cover for the breaking 
and entering fraternity. I've usually been asked to do this immediately after 
a burglary has been committed.

Trees and crime prevention might be a bit tricky.

Bill.

That, while we're talking about crime, is daylight robbery!
