Hi David,

This is precisley why Arborists should not take on woodland management. Arboriculture is ok and has a place in the urban enviroment, maybe. It is absolutly usseles in the context of Sylviculture.

When to thin how much to thin and where to thin is an art form. Not a science.

Cheers
Ben

Hi Andrew
The way I'd go about this is to run TreeCalc on the exposed trees to get a handle on the Basic Safety Factor. Then have a look through Paul Muir's 2019 AA Conference presentation, and head to the section where he talks about modifying the wind load, around slide 49.
